Summer continues: walk 119

October 26, 2016

Seeing as yesterday, 25th October, was literally the first day in the month of October in which I’ve been able to do a walk (weather notwithstand- ing), it was good fortune that the day was bright and clear, continuing the pattern that has enveloped Northern England for a couple of months now — and which has been gratefully welcomed.

Walk 119 headed over the beautiful limestone pavement of Whitbarrow, which was well worth visiting, then Newton Fell (South), which was probably not worth it, but is now bagged a second time so I don’t have to do it again.

The walk was also notable for the company of Joe, who today bagged his 27th and 28th Wainwrights. He’ll still just about come out on a walk; as this photo makes clear, he’s now pretty much as tall as me. Not sure I’ve raised a fellwalker yet but we’ll see if I can keep working on it.

As of today then I have done 78 of the 330 Wainwrights, thus have 252 to go. Next walk on 5th November I hope. In the meantime have a look at the walk 119 page if you would like to know more.
