This year I am taking my (by myself) holiday in the Lake District, staying at the Ambleside end of Windermere in a pleasant little hotel. My motivation is a desire to revisit this beautiful area that I have visited many times in the past, though not for many years, to see if I can still make it to the tops of the hills and, of course, to pick up a few caches, many aimed at furthering the many challenges I have set myself, including qualifying for one or two challenge caches.

I work up to the rain, again, but the forecast indicated it would clear up, which it eventually did and I set out mid-morning for an eclectic mixture of caches, none of which would required extensive walking. I did however manage to visit Kendel, Keswick, Langdale and Borrowdale and wonder whether I spent more time driving than caching today. We're a queer bunch!
This was second in the list and what was to be the last shower of the day passed across as I parked up close to the cattle grid and start of the footpath. No matter, it's time for lunch. Soon enough I was making my way up the hillside in uncomfortably windy conditions but made my way to the summit and then down to GZ without incident. There I made a quick find, taking away the Travel Bug for relocation down South somewhere.
You'll see from my profile that I'm well qualified for this!
