With a gap in the weather, it was only right to head back north for a few days' walking. Thursday dawned wet and windy ... possibly not good for walking. However, after a late start and an early lunch (sat in the car with the wind lashing the rain against the soft-top), the sun suddenly came out and the snow-capped mountains became visible - and inviting.
With British Summer Time over, there was an hour less in which to complete a walk in daylight and so there was only enough time to cover just the two Wainwrights. Few people were out on such a lovely day - I had the snow cover all to myself. Despite the wind, which blew the hail and snow with such force that it stung, the views from the summits were amazing!
Having been made an offer I couldn't refuse, I left 30 years of (office) work behind and now 'work' outdoors.
As Nehru so neatly said, we live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
Thus, with eyes open and asking questions, I hope to continue learning through experience and travel, as these are as education in themselves.
Happy reading - I shall be happy travelling ...
