Bethan's second "Wainwright" was to be Gavel Fell.

A brief stop for coffee sheltered from the brisk northerly by the summit cairn.

In the far distance a view of the Isle of Man plus its slight cloud cover.

Bethan is now fifteen weeks and so is eager to walk.

However a little rest on the down hill sections meant that she had sufficient energy to climb to the next summit.

Four miles on and time for a second carry.

Fighting to keep awake.


Why bother when you don't have to !
