Where are you this fine day? I am overlooking Skiddaw in the beautiful Lake District.
The book is a highly recommended read by Gail Honeyman and most enjoyable in the Cumbrian sun shine. We are away to celebrate a Hubs BIG birthday ( but don’t tell him that I told you)
Skiddaw is a mountain in the Lake District National Park in England. Its 931-metre (3,054 ft) summit is the sixth-highest in England. It lies just north of the town of Keswick, Cumbria, and dominates the skyline in this part of the northern lakes. It is the simplest of the Lake District mountains of this height to ascend (as there is a well-trodden tourist track from a car park to the north-east of Keswick, near the summit of Latrigg) and, as such, many walking guides recommend it to the occasional walker wishing to climb a mountain. This is the first summit of the fell running challenge known as the Bob Graham Round when undertaken in a clockwise direction.
This birthday is being celebrated by just “being here” What more can you ask for? We are lucky to have amazingly good weather, nice accommodation and each other. Happy days.
