We found ourselves in Staveley this morning for a visit to the cycle shop. Our intention had been to call in at the shop for the piece of kit we were after and then to drive through to Kentmere and have a walk from there. Annoyingly, more so because the cycle shop seemed to stock everything you could possibly need for a bike, they didn't have what we wanted. The guy suggested another shop in Kendal, which was fair enough, but that would ruin the chance of a walk from Kentmere.
After a couple of minutes sitting in the car feeling fed up, we decided to have a walk up to Kemp Tarn and Reston Scar before trying the shop in Kendal.
After what was a disappointing start to the day we ended up having a great time. A nice walk from Staveley, the cycle shop in Kendal had what we were after and we had a nice drive over Shap.
