KR's guided walks are over for another season, it's our quiet time now and on Tuesday Pete, Lyn and Bella went off for the day on their own for a change and what a great day it was. We took one of Stagecoach's new buses over to Ambleside and walked over Loughrigg Fell to Grasmere. It's not very far and it's not difficult either or particularly high, but the views are from near the top of Loughrigg you can see the vista opening out down Langdale with the Pikes in the distance.

Final posting - coast to coast

Photo by Tracy Testin
Phew, at last I finished this posting, it seemed like a marathon, rather like the walk itself.  There were so many excellent photos from the group + the ones we took, so I was musing over which ones to put in the blog for ages. Anyway, here it is finally done.
