Wednesday 20 June 2012 - Patterdale to Shap

Another fine day's walk in lovely sunny weather, over Angletarn Pikes, Brock Crags, Rest Dodd, The Knott, Rampsgill Head and Kidsty Pike, some of which Andrew and Gary (aka Cramp + Blister - and that's just Andrew) also ventured up.

I rejoined their less vertiginous route after this little bout of summiteering, for lunch in the sun by Haweswater, which appeared to have been invaded by Canada geese.

A gentle walk to Shap followed. I'm camping at A+G's B+B, which happens to be at the opposite end of town to our chosen eatery, the Greyhound. There we encountered John K - a TGO Challenger who is leading a HF (Holiday Fellowship) group along the C2C route. If his better half, Norma, is watching - 'Hello, we hope you are continuing to recover from your back op'.

Sadly the phone's media card seems to have suffered a 'fatal error' so today's image is one of Brothers Water from Brock Crags, saved to the phone by some fluke this morning.

Hi Martin,
Your in for a bit/lot of wet stuff thursday.

I’ve now ditched the BB. Stands for Bloody Blackberry in my book. Now using HTC which blogs like a home PC.

Did you know that if your BB packs up completely and you transfer your sim card to another phone there will be nothing on the sim. All your contacts and pics will be gone. Make sure you have a backup just in case.

Thank you Martin! Recovering slowly but (hopefully) surely.

Hi Martin

The BB saves photographs to internal memory if the card either isn't there or dud. Since I usually don't want to keep the BB pics I simply delete when memory is full.
