Mooching at Long Meg, Lacey’s Caves et al

9 03 2021

Wed 24 February 2021

As I had to spend a whole day away from my house while some disruptive work was being done I decided to hunt the only area with a survivable weather window to walk for several hours in – our area was going to be deluged with heavy rain and all my nearby mountains were too.  It looked to have a small area of light rain all day around Langwathby so (lockdown notwithstanding) I set off over there.  Before people get too upset, I really don’t think I had any other choice and it’s only around a 25 mile drive anyway and I drive 20 miles each way to work many days each week.

Merry Christmas

A merry Christmas to all my readers – hope you have a good one and manage to stay safe from the plague! (still hate this new bloody editor!) 😐





Whinlatter Round aka ‘Caught in the Forest’!

8 09 2020

Tue 7 April 2020
This was during lockdown but, as I’d had to travel to Keswick anyway, I did the walk on my way back. I knew all the Whinlatter Forest carparks were shut (and so the Forestry people thought that Whinlatter Forest was also shut) but I also knew there was roadside parking. There were a couple of other cars there and I bumped into one girl just coming back from the hill (although, of course, at a 6 foot social-distance!)… Read the rest of this entry »





The Black Lagoon Strikes Again!

13 05 2020

The other day, yet again, there was a woolly body sticking out of the bog… I went to investigate… Read the rest of this entry »





The Joker

I was sat in the sun outside my conservatory (at the back of the house as prescribed by law right now I think) when I heard something really odd… Read the rest of this entry »





The (Equal) Dangers of Lowland Walking and a funny story

2 04 2020

Not sure whether he did it to prove that lowland walking is just as ‘dangerous’ as going to the hills but this is a (very) short story about Richard… Read the rest of this entry »





Mean Joke!

14 02 2020

I’m off to see Ozzy Osbourne soon – supposedly it’s his last tour. Should be a good do – apparently he has Alzheimers now so he’ll sing everything twice! 😉

(Before anyone gets offended, I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he’d made a similar joke about himself and the situation – it would fit with his sense of humour).





Fairy Folklore Tale & Drawing

25 01 2020

I drew this off a birthday card I once got – and then scanned it in negative. I also found a poem, along the lines of many folklore tales and on a favourite theme of mine, which seemed to go well with it… Read the rest of this entry »
