An afternoon on Gummers How

Name of walk An afternoon on Gummers How
Date of walk 2013-02-07

Last week I had my third Pulmonary Vein Isolation op at Blackpool Victoria Hospital and have been stuck indoors for a week with a DVD boxed set of 7 series of “Criminal Minds”. I`ve got to season six! I feel I’m now a fully trained probationary serial killer! Thankfully I still prefer walking as a hobby!
Gummers How is always a good little fell (1054ft) to get one back in the swing of things, so Brendan and I did an afternoon walk in the sunshine.

A quick walk of under an hour. Much better than being cooped up at home!
