A Day's Walking

I was due to have a day's walking coaching with a client yesterday, but by Tuesday the weather forecast looked so dreadful that we decided to re-schedule.

Then on Thursday morning, the forecast wasn't nearly so bad - cloud at 750m and a 40% chance of rain.

So I decided to take the day off and go walking with the family.  We had a fabulous time: went over High Spy, down to Deepdale Tarn, up to Deepdale Head, over Hindscarth and back down to Little Town where we'd left the car.  About 9 miles in all, with about 2500 feet of height gain.

Fabulous views of Bassenthwaite, Derwent and Buttermere, and all the fells surrounding them - and the rain stayed off, and we were just below the clouds.  And as ever, conversation is very rich when you are out for a long walk - which is why it's so good for coaching.  I'll have to blog about that next....
