We visited Appleby on the easter weekend with the intention of camping on the saturday night and then doing High Cup Nick on the Sunday.
The weather was not ideal and the ground was quite wet so not ideal camping conditions and so armed with these exscuses I persuaded Boggins Dad to book us into the Tufton for the night
We used to live in Knock so we have done High Cup Nick a few times and it is without doubt our favourite walk. By the time we sent off up the valley the rain had stopped and we were smiling.
The geohounds were covering three times more ground than us and having a wonderful time. We stopped at the head of the valley for a coffee and biscuit to prepare us for the climb up, which is quite a climb!
Boggins Dad pointed out where the cache was and persuaded me to (grudgingly) make my way around to it. I tried not to look down! it was quite slippy after the rain and so real care was needed to get to the cache, but we did and signed the log and replaced! we have wanted this cache for ages and we are very happy to have logged it now!
This however, good as is was, was not the highlight of the day.....
After stopping at the top and having another coffee whilst enjoying the view we set off at a fair pace to get out of the sleet and wind which had started. I was making good progress when I realised Boggins dad had stopped, I turned round and suggested he get a move on because it was cold (!) but he stopped my moaning in moment- by asking me to marry him!!!!! I have ofcourse said yes and have to say the location could not have been better Thank you for setting the cache and bringing us back to this special area!
