Well I certainly didn't expect to end up walking here today. After an optimistic weather forecast last night, I left home at 8 o'clock this morning intending to have a long walk on the Langdales. Talk about disappointed, I was only 4 or 5 miles into the journey and the amount of cloud at ground level, and the lack of any views at all, had me thinking twice about what I should do. Once it started raining my mind was made up and I went back home for the morning.
The second attempt at a walk was pure pot luck. I could see from a distance that these fells were cloud free so that was good enough for me and I headed across to Longlands.
