A WALK ROUND THE LAKES 2012 AMBLESIDE TO BRAITHWAITE

Well it's that time of year again, walking hols with Pud. He's decided to do this walk, roughly anyway, we will actually cut across from boot to Coniston Water so he can get back for cricket.
Walking along the roadside the first water we come across is Rydal Water on the way to Grasmere
Then it's along the valley at Far Easedale to start climbing the hills at the back. Just look at the perfectly clear blue sky, hot, hot, hot, tongue lopping out already


This picture is taken at the top of a place called Greenup Edge looking back to the famous Lion and the Lamb
As you can see it is still blistering hot, i'm managing just fine but Pud is wilting FAST. But not to worry, just down the steep climb behind me is Stonethwaite and the first pub .....


The Longstrath Inn, Stonethwaite.



A cool beer for Pud, a few doggie biscuits for me and away we go. 200 yards down the road, well let's just say he must be more thirsty than ae thought because into The Riverside bar at Rosthwaite for another swiftie.

Next was a walk beside the Derwent River

Then we were that tired it was a walk along the road via The Swinside Inn in Newlands Valley

Then finally arriving a 7.00pm at the Royal Oak in Braithwaite. BUGGERED !!!!!!!!
