It had been a busy day and the dogs had been raring to go for a walk since the time we got up . . .

Do we have to ? . . . . . Harry and Bethan

This was probably the best day of the week weather wise, and I was feeling ready to get out and enjoy a little fresh air

after my enforced inactivity (Monday's minor hernia operation !)

This was chosen as it was a relatively easy walk.

Horses enjoying the late sunshine and the last of the summer grass . . . .

. . . in their field with a view.

The old coffin road crossed the level ground towards Burnbank Fell.

The panorama takes in ( l to r ) Darling Fell, Low Fell, Whiteside, Grasmoor, Whiteless Pike, Robinson, Mellbreak, Burnbank Fell.

The bracken has completely turned on this side of the fell side, but the shade doesn't allow it an Autumnal glow.

Grasmoor is beautifully reflected in Loweswater below us.

The green road continues towards Mellbreak, but we turn for home.

Couldn't resist one more view of the calm Loweswater.

In the shade, the temperature dropped rapidly

so the thicker fleece was quite handy.

Scotland, and Criffel Mountain across the Solway.
