I have lived here since 1985 and it is only in the last 2 years I have taken to walking on the fells. Prior to that I was either playing golf or cycling.
For anyone interested picture was taken with a Panasonic TZ80 (about 200) with it set for "Distinct Scenery" and copied straight from the camera with no adjustments.
Tempted to walk to the nearest highest hill, then I remembered I was told the farmer had ploughed over the path! Never mind there's always to walk nearby. My golfing days were ended by injury, at least I achieved a hole in one!

My golfing days were ended by trying golf. It definitely is a waste of a walk.

It was mud all day but well worth it . I wonder how much extra energy is used , plodding through sticky mud . This section was a delight & easy .

I`m not sure about best pic of the day..this was my only pic of the day , taken on my phone from a bridge at a place called Hopwood . I avoided the canal towpaths today as they were too busy for my liking . I still got a very enjoyable , fast 7 mile walk in though . :)

Pictures of a walk from home though Kingmoor South Nature Reserve, then into Kingmoor North, back into Kingmoor South and then into Kingmoor Sidings , back into Kingmoor South and home. All in Carlisle and in total 12Km from door to door. Should have gone the day before when the trees were heavy with snow and the pics would have been better.

Mermaids purses



Just for interest. A shark species (dogfish?) developing within the mermaids purse. Taken in Plymouth Aquarium
So many paths yet to walk, so little time left
