Saturday 13 July. It’s too hot for serious walking so today I decided on a short 3 mile stroll from the caravan to the shore of Coniston Water and back. Setting off at 9am before the heat of the day became too much, I made my way down through the woods on Torver Common to Hoathwaite Landing. My way back took me through a busy campsite at Hoathwaite Farm. I was back at just after 10, in time to watch cricket and the TDF on TV for the rest of the day.
