Home again after a weather curtailed, but nonetheless enjoyable, holiday in the southern lakes. The highlight of the holiday had to be the walk across Morecambe Bay closely followed by a walk from Hawkshead. Both of these were undertaken in super weather conditions which make a world of difference to any walk. Much of this holiday was outside the true boundary of the Lake District National Park but the high hills were never too far away. My one excursion to the hills was restricted to the flanks of Coniston Old Man on Walna Scar Road at a maximum height of 1,230ft. Sadly, the weather turned more changeable so I decided to come home 3 days early. 6 walks were undertaken totalling 43½ miles and 7,100ft of ascent. The seasons totals now stand at 319 miles and 60,700ft of ascent.
