Spring 2016

I’m a little on the late side with this one, I think, but I’m just about in under the time limit I set myself for the season posts.

I made myself a little schedule for my blog posts, and so far I’ve completely failed to keep up to date.

Well, I guess I could be worse.

Anyway, photos from Spring. And I’m actually putting them in chronological order for once, that’s something. So first, here’s a few of some March snow, in the town of Earby, and along the Leeds-Liverpool canal between Foulridge and Salterforth:

And a visit to Cowling Pinnacle and Sutton Pinnacle/Lund’s Tower/I don’t generally call it by any name so I’m not actually sure which is the more common one. Anyway, up there:

Around Earby 5 Spent one night in Hawkshead, in the Youth Hostel – I took a load of pictures in their grounds, so I feel I should specify. I was also there for the Windermere Half Marathon, which I wasn’t running in, but I was cheering. Well, supporting. Some people run the full marathon ten days in a row, which I feel I ought to mention just because it’s impressive. The event starts and ends at Brathay Hall in Ambleside, whose grounds I also took pictures in. So here’s photos from around there: 1 - Tyre Swing

4 - Into the Woods 2 5 - Bud
6 - Little Bridge 7 - Rotted
