We strode off together up Maiden Moor and yes we did the summit unlike all the rest of the people we met apart from one couple who had got it right and did stand on the true summit of Maiden Moor. It never ceases to amaze me how many people don't know where the top of Maiden Moor is; they stand on a bit of rock and think its the summit when it isn't............Well after Bella and I smugly left the summit, we continued on our way toward High Spy. Now most people do manage to find this one but it does have a huge cairn.....
My idea was to head for Rosthwaite and take the open top bus back to Keswick but we called into the Yew Tree Cafe on the way to the bus stop because it was such a lovely sunny afternoon, and a cup of tea in the garden beckoned. The tea was excellent and the garden was empty so we settled down and watched the sparrows playing in the shrubbery. The open top bus came up the road and we knew we had 10 minutes to stroll to the bus stop.
