I'm hiding from the sun today. I cut the front lawn a lunch time.  I may cut the back later, if/when things cool down a little.   :)

Nice part of the world - must pay a visit to Swaledale soon, and Arkengarthdale is a gem.

High Street from Mardale Head via Rough Edge, than a meander round from the Knott to Gray Crag, descending via Nan Bield Pass.  Grovelling for the last couple of miles as the heat was intense.  Very glad to get back to the car, but a wonderful day, topped off by a Zoom quiz with four Evertonians last night - some things are worth waiting for  ;D

Sounds like a good airy high level meander - any photos?

Very few Richard - got a couple of ok shots of Haweswater from the beginning of Rough Crag then hardly got the camera out  :-[ .  I was concentrating on keeping my legs moving in the heat.  I will try harder next time, promise.

Treyarnon Bay back to Newquay for me today, the reverse of my regular route.  12 miles along a VERY windy southwest coast path.  If id tied string around the dog i could have flown him like a kite!

one step then another then another then a bench - please?

Lovely walk, I know the route so well from my surfing days.  Do you drop down Strasse Cliff into Watergate bay or head along the top?  I almost always drop down and enjoy the beach down to Porth.

The 5 mile restriction on travelling has been lifted in Scotland today so I was able to head for Shetlands highest hill for a wander.
My son and I only did 4.5 miles but it was great to get back into the wilds.
Road walking has its uses, but is so boring compared with the hills.
There were Plenty of wild flowers and Golden Plovers my favourite bird.
Next time I am up I will go further and see If the snowy Owl is still here and spy on some Red throated Divers.
Lang Clodie Wick also Beckons.

always go along the top, not been brave enough to scramble down the cliff but i often see surfers carrying their boards down that way.  braver souls than me :)
