Wrynose and Hardknot Pass

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.

"mountain goat!" very funny. This sounds very interesting to me...walking, drinking...bed and breakfast!

What a beautiful area for a walk/hike. I'm sure teenager had a lot of fun with the guys.

Have a lovely day!

That's a really beautiful photo. Sounds a good weekend to me, for the amigos anyway.

Looks stunning up there - what a great thing to do, even with the drinking and fry ups, I'm sure they earn it in walking points!

Your photo is beautiful.
I'll bet teenager had a great time with the amigos.

I enjoy meeting new people.
If you don't mind I would like to add you to my list.

How strange. Many years ago as a twenty nine year old I drove over H and W in a mini. Last week, aged sixty nine I took my motor home over. Not a clever thing to do! Just been writing about it for a motorhome mag. They pay me, but as Paul Daniels would say, 'not a lot'!
