Date : Sat 10th May 2003 p.m.

Place : To Rannerdale, and round Crummock Water. A Bluebell walk.

Event : An afternoon walk with Pat and Mike.

Distance and time : 8.5 miles - a leisurely stroll including an hour's lunch - about six hours.

Weather : A cool start, but getting better by the hour. Beautifully sunny to end.

The Bluebells are out, just. The recent rain and warm temparatures have done the trick !!

Even though they are small and newly out, the sheer quantity gives the hillside a rich blue colour.

Big smile - You can see Oak Cottage from here !!!
