This last weekend has been all about the parties! Our go to party on Sunday was in Keswick in the Lake District at 3pm. It being fairly late in the day we had time to go exploring beforehand.
We packed up a picnic lunch and headed for Mungrizedale just outside of Keswick. We parked our car in a lay by and found a spot to picnic by a river.
I love it when Dave makes the sandwiches as they are never boring. Today we had ham, pesto, cream cheese and tomato! They were delicious and not random at all!
After a quick picnic we checked out the OS Map for the area. There was a bridle way near by that took us up to Bowscale Tarn on the side of Skiddaw.
It didn’t look too long or steep so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to try out a back carry with my woven wrap. Normally I make Dave carry him if it’s a big climb.
The start of the walk is a nice steady incline with beautiful views up the Caldew valley. It’s a quiet route as it isn’t in the heart of the tourist area.
The terrain was good and it wasn’t until the small last section that the incline got worse. Hidden away behind a small hill was a the Bowscale tarn.
The sun was shining and the tarn glistened as we came over the horizon. A beautiful little spot sheltered from the wind. We didn’t hang around though as we needed to get back down again to head to our party.
But first a quick at the tarn photo shoot:
A perfect little trip for an afternoon walk. Did you get out and about at the weekend? Where did you go?
