Saturday 4 May 2013 - A Bank Holiday Bimble

Overnight rain didn't persist beyond breakfast time at Dalegarth campsite at the end of Buttermere.

On a cool morning Sue and I parked up at Rannerdale and headed up the road beside Crummock Water.  Wheatears attentively monitored our progress.  Soon a crocodile of fourteen people appeared ahead of us.  Dave's birthday party had escaped from the Kirkstile Innovative.  We soon caught up.  Graham was there.

The weather cleared and we enjoyed an excellent stroll over the west and east tops of Whiteside, Gasgale Crags, Hopegill Head, Ladyside Pike, Sand Hill, Grasmoor (lunch), Crag Hill, Eel Crag, Wandope, Thirdgill Head Man, Whiteless Pike and Rannerdale Knotts. (Thirteen Birketts, twelve miles.) 

An excellent outing in the best of company,  with cake from Tove as well as the usual shortbread and brownies.

Sent from my new phone. Hope it works.

Looks like a good quality image. These things are improving all the time.
