A nice Place

Sunshine and snowy tops perfect 'Wainwright' walking and Place Fell was a perfect mountain top, Leaving Patterdale and climbing steeply up the fell, with the sun shinning and barely any wind it didn't feel the 1 degrees that was on the thermometer. I got new walking mountaineer boots for Christmas and was warned when purchasing them that I could expect blisters for a year!! Not what a woman wants to hear. So today they got their 1st outing, they are much heavier and more sturdier than anything I've had before. I felt like Bambi with great big heavy hoofs, but they kept the feet dry and I didn't slip and best of all no sore feet.
This is a blown up photo from the picture above, it's of one of my favourite Lakeland peaks 'Striding Edge' This was the view where we stopped and had a coffee, what a view!
Me and the boots!
Couldn't resist the mention of Bambi, especially when we saw these on the unbelievably steep ascent, Nigel my walking partner takes great pleasure in taking us off route, usually it involves scrambling down, clutching onto heather for my dear life! But today seeing these beauties made it more than worthwhile.
All alone
