This is Wrynose Pass in the Lake District. On Friday I had to go over both Wrynose and Hardknott pass in the car to collect teenager from a walk that he had been on with his dad, and dad's pals.
Every year other half sets out with his longtime amigos ( they all met at school- lovely eh?) for a walking and drinking weekend. Schedule is something like: big walk, real ale, food, sleep in rural bed and breakfast, eat large greasy fry up in bed and breakfast, big walk, real ale, food, sleep....
Get the picture?
Last year teenager went along for the 'big walk' and loved every minute of it. I collected him at the end of it so the oldies ( sorry lads) can continue their amigos weekend. This year they planned to do Scafell Pike (3209 feet) which is England's highest mountain. And they did it, and had a great time.
Hope to have photos for you soon.
We bought teenager some new post Oz trip walking boots and apparently he was like a mountain goat. All that Aussie rules football has been keeping him fit obviously.
