...BUT SOMEONE'S GOT TO DO IT

Sitting in a pub in Coniston, reunited with Lord Elpus ~ but more about him later.

It's actually sunny out there, Captain, which is in stark contrast to the weather earlier in the day when we walked Walna Scar Road one and a half times ~ but more about that later.

It was very wet, very cold and very blowy up there. The WSR is a motorway with the occasional cruelly steep climby-bit that takes your lungs away and replaces them with vinegar soaked brown paper bags. Perhaps it was more like Jennings soaked brown paper bags. Could be.

Anyway, we made it here and are now supping Bluebird Ales having polished off a pretty good haddock and chips. My phone is almost dry once more. The twenty pound notes are now separated too.

  1. Bluebird? That'll be the Black Bull then I hope it's going down well.

    I'm not jealous.

    Not at all.

    Honest.

  2. Wow - there's nothing like a 'live blog' is there? And Lord Elphus? We are waiting, lots of us, 'refreshing' every few minutes, wondering what has become of him!
    [As you may gather, you have handled today's summery weather differently to some of us! Suffice to say it was 6C in the South Pennines.]

  3. Hmm Bluebird Tasty!,
    Sunny all day today in the Sperrin Mountains, supping some Nimbus now, with the feet up!

  5. JJ: It was indeed the Black Bull.

    Martin: More on Lord Elpus later!

    Michael: Bluebird - vey tasty indeed!

    We then went on later to another fine public house in Conison where we stayed for quite a while.

  6. This walking is a terribly tough business.

    Keep at it!
