What a fabulous day, and well done for making the best of it! (I was recovering from gastro enteritus :( )

Interesting walk in a lovely part of the Lakes, and some great photos. The weather that Sunday was just perfect wasn't it? Wasted on me as I was roped into a family outing to Keswick - only walked as far as Friar's Crag. Tsk :roll:

The Buttermere area didn't look like that at New Year!

It was a stunning day to be out and that looked a great walk. I was braving the semi frozen bogs of the Cental fells at the same time.
