Lows of a different kind

After finishing my last lakes post on a low note, with me being all huffy about not reaching the top, I thought I'd share some lake land lows of a different kind.

On one of our days we spent our time wandering round the valley that our cottage was in.We wandered through green fields and past gurgling rivers. The hills in the morning were mist covered ........ and the spiderwebs in the hedgerows were decorated with droplets of dew.We got to admire the unmistakable peaks of the Langdale pikes, and were quite amazed to think that the day before we had actually been admiring the view from the top.The benefits of walking in the valley as opposed to hiking on the hills was that there were plenty of refreshment stops along the way, we visited six pubs in about six miles :)The downside of too much drinking was that vision started to blur and the map got harder to read as the day went on, lol.This last shot was probably my favourite view of the day. Ok so there were no majestic peaks, or pretty rivers but if you look closely you'll make out our little row of cottage. They look so cosy nestled into the hill side looking over the lovely rolling valley.

sometimes the valleys are just as good. Don't think I will be tackling many hills this year. I am so unfit!

What a wonderful place to walk and six pubs on the way is my kind of walk. ;-) Too funny about the blurred vision & maps harder to read. lol

You always go to the most lovely places! I'm glad you didn't get lost with that blurry map reading :)
