Another Post Card from KD

 

I’m on holiday in the Lake District right now, and here is my second post card  to you lovelies. We woke up Tuesday morning and decided to tackle a challenge. We walked from Grasmere over Easdale Tarn across Grasmere Common to High Raise and all the way back to catch the bus at Rosthwaite some twelve challenging miles away. Over crags and scrambles and bogs. It was typical Raymond and KD biting off almost more than we could chew, but totally loving the adventure. Here are a few shots.   When I return, I’ll do my best to inspire, entertain and titillate, but in the meantime, here are a few shots from Cumbria. Enjoy! I’ll be back in time for the next Shameless Selfie Sunday.

It was 4:30 when we reached the summit of High Raise. We had been walking since 11:00 over a long craggy, but beautiful ascent.

Food of the Gods! Grasmere Gingerbread! There’s only one place on earth where you can buy it. The recipe is a 200 year-old secret kept in a bank vault and people line up at Mrs Nelson’s to buy the stuff and it is SOOOO worth the wait! Great walking food!

My walking partner. Hottest man on the fells!

At the end of a scary walk over boggy, nondescript moors where a bit of navigation skill was needed. The view well worth the effort.

We returned to our lovely hotel at 7:30 that night for a steamy shower and a lovely roast chicken dinner. It was a little over twelve miles of hard ascent and slogging through moorland bogs and worth every second of it! To date, it was one of the most challenging walks we’ve done.
