On Monday Ged, Kas and I took another short walk from Blawith Common up to, and around Beacon Tarn, to Beacon Fell and back.
The forecast was for gales and low cloud, so there was little point in venturing out too far.
Kas leads the way up
Looking back to Coniston Water
Lots of undulating terrain. I saw a lizard too!
It is none too warm either! My car said 5C
We walk around. Beacon Fell on the right
From the far end. We now head up to Beacon Fell
Not much to see and it is really windy, so we quickly head back down
Kas knows the way
He checks to see we are still following
Looks like it is brightening up a bit
Panorama of our recent fell walks on the eastern side of Coniston, including Top o'Selside, Arnsbarrow Fell and Brock Barrow
We head down to the road, my car on the left
We detour to The Gondola Jetty......There is a multitude of unnecessary prohibitory signs: "No barbecues on the jetty", "No unauthorised access to jetty" etc
I gain unauthorised access..........absolutely no sign of the jetty police! We have lunch on the seat, which remarkably does not have a "Do not sit here on pain of death" sign attached to it.
My favourite prohibitory sign is this one on the side of Thirlmere....at least it has style!
We then head along the shore
Heading for a frequent summer swimming spot. I used to take Tom and his mates here
It is toad mating season
Lakeshore. There are bit of blue sky now
The narrowest, and shallowest part of Coniston Water. I have swam across the lake here......but not today!
Another good walk for a unpredictable weather day. The south got temperatures in the twenties today………….Grrrrrrr!!!!!!
There should be a law against smugness! 😉
Shall I put a sign up?
