Starting in Patterdale I walked up to Boredale Hause then up to Place Fell. Here's where it all went a bit wrong and I completely lost my bearings. I worked out approximately where I was, followed what I hoped was the correct bearing to get back on track. I've never been so pleased to see a sheepfold before! The rest of the walk was relatively uneventful but the last section was a bit of a route march to get back on time schedule which was a shame because it meant I didn't enjoy the walk along Ullswater as much as I could have.

Another warm sunny day. Definitely time to go home, don't want to push my luck with the weather!
