Saturday was clear and crisp and oh so very cold - what a lovely day to have a micro-adventure!
We drove up to the Lakes early and with 'dragon's breath' (breath vapour) around our faces and wrapped up warm, we set off from the village of Elterwater.
❤ village and flanked by snow topped mountains we walked up towards Little Langdale.
How more perfect❤ a lunch spot could you find?We sat in a sun trap and had to most glorious view. (Yes I am knitting....a party of walkers- all men - commented that they'd seen many things out on the hills but not a set of knitting needles - I say that they have not lived life to the full!!)
Looking at the above photo, we walked to the left behind the far trees, along the wall just about in the sun to the left of the tarn. Our path continued through the fields in the middle of the picture at the base of the mountains where we stopped at that small pinnacle (Castle Howe) slightly right of centre behind the tarn. From there we walked back towards the snow covered hills on the left and then through the gap (centre of the photo and out of view)
Our path took us down off the hills through villages back to the car.
As we were about to leave, we were treated to a fantastic sunset. So instead of driving off, we found a spot high up the side of a hill and just watched as the sun went down.
❤ connection for February? Well Youngest had found a heart shaped ❤ stone on our walk - you could not have chosen a better symbol for our day :) Just perfect.❤
