After time in the garden it was time to walk the dog but I hadn't planned to take photos this evening,
but as the weather today was so good it seemed churlish not to.
I dug deep into the pocket and found my phone and took a few shots as Harry and I went round "Under Mellbreak".
The view up our valley towards Haystacks and Great Gable.
The view back to the Kirkstile, getting ready for their weekend Beer Festival.
I stopped to replace a few fallen stones and Harry thought it was time for a rest.
" Was I that long ? "
The northern end of Mellbreak and the best way up the fell by a long shot.
Beautiful sunshine on the twins of Whiteside and Grasmoor.
The other twins, Darling Fell and Low Fell
seen over the field with the ancient earthworks, possibly a fortress from the days of Earl Beothar ?
The view back from the fell gate.
I climbed the steep firebreak as if to go to Mellbreak, then took a left along the trackway above the woods.
If you're going to climb it, try and avoid the brown scree run . . . it is the hard way up anyway.
Down through Flass Woods and onto the bottom road.
We turn onto the path for home, Muncaster House shining brightly across the field.
A short walk but sunny pictures I hope you have enjoyed as much as I did taking them.
