Ok Day 2 of the tour

Hannah decides a walk round a few pubs is better than biking it ( Nah can't be any fun in that  :P ) and just see what you missed  :cool:

ok the things i have to suffer just to get to the meeting point with Chris









I got there a couple of mins before Chris and saw this lovely sitting in the sun



and then this beauty sat in the sun  :cool:



Chris turns up and we set off about 6 miles to stop number one

Surprise View , Derwent water in the foreground and basselthwaite  lake beyond.



don't walk to far forward (it's a big drop)



Always look Behind you for other views





onward we travel over honister pass and along buttermere to Crummock water ( Chris has video of honister )

Very picturesque lake this one



After crummock we head over past lowes water and up towards cold fell ( getting a glimpse of the solway firth and scotland on the way

After crossing cold fell and getting a view of windscale / sellafield nuclear establishment we drop down to Wastwater ( britain's best view )

Scafell in the distance
