2017 Boxing Day Walk


The rain was falling when we all arrived at Elterwater car park but that had not deterred 15 escapees + 2 dogs from the Christmas excesses for the Boxing Day Walk. As we climbed Loughrigg the rain cleared and we had great views towards Dunmail and Fairfield with snow on the summits. We walked along the bumpy ridge and decided on a  grassy knoll with good views for lunch. After a quick lunch we  descended to the bridleway and on to Loughrigg Tarn and a short road walk led us to Low Wood arboretum to encircle a Sequoia Redwood - it took eight of us.

It was then back up to the road and a descent to the cars. We later  joined the Macdonald family in the pub at Foxfield and all enjoyed a fabulous meal helped down by just a little beer. Thanks to Linda and Stuart for looking after us and all who came to our traditional festive walk. Happy New Year.
