We've had a fantastic week in the Lakes, staying at Santon Bridge near Wast Water. This was a short break sandwiched in between our visits to St.Mary's Cheadle and Holy Trinity Gee Cross. We really enjoyed having some time and space just to ourselves. Joel & Eli seemed to appreciate having a bit more attention than usual. The two walks we managed were three miles and four miles respectively and Joel did amazingly well, particularly on the four miler as he walked about 90% of the way. We made it fun by jumping in puddles, throwing sticks and stones into rivers and counting cowpats and sheep poos along the way.
Daddy & Eli out walking. We managed two decent walks in which Joel did really well and walked about 90% of the way.
Dad and the Boys, yes it was hard work carrying both, fortunately Joel did walk most of the time, even if it was at a snails pace.
Up on the fells with no idea that the Great Gable is right behind him with Scafell off to the left.
