Have a wonderful trip and keep the photos coming! I have almost given up on KSP but let’s just say that even the poo photo is better than some nauseating stuff elsewhere in KSP. Wishing you fair weather throughout the trip! :smile:


AM,

I know the feeling. I went through them many times.

btw the poop bombs weren’t smelly at all, at least I thought so. The entire was literally littered with these, yet there was no bad odor in the air.

My initial plan was to catch the sunrise at Castlerigg Stones. As breakfast was served at 8am the earliest, I ditched the going out in the dark plan. So lucky, right? Else we might hv poops all under our walking shoes.

:rotflmao: so apt for what has been happening here. MP is right- we can choose what to see, hear, speak n seek out happiness.

The weather here changes in the nick of the eye.

See the skies at Castlerigg Stones. Was all greyish, then suddenly the sun broke through the dark clouds.

Afterwhich, we were blessed with sunny skies till late afternoon.

On our way to Aira Force

Along the roads, there are P signs and designated road shoulder to stop the car.

We stopped by one of these and saw this footpath sign. There was no gate to open out, only a fence with 2 pieces of stepping wooden planks.

My first climb over the fence experience :laugh:

There is a thorny plant near this fence. Luckily we worn long sleeves and pants.

Aira Force

We used googlemap to arrive at one of the carpark Park Brow. There is a main entrance, dunno how come googlemap did not lead us there.

Image

Image

Kind request to pay for parking, no enforcement personnel on site, really depends on good moral values.

The inital flights of steps from carpark entry to wards Aira Force

Image

Sign post. Reminds me of a kd Let’s Eat in which the characters went hiking, asked a few elderly who came down the hill how far away the peak is and each elderly: another x mins away. :rotflmao: my advice: come by the main entrance, use the free toilet before attempting the walk towards Aira Force, esp if your companion is photograph craze :wink:

There is no telco service once we were near Aira Force. In fact, we could not connect to the network when driving away from Park Brow carpark. Had to rely on the car GPS to show the way.

See the rainbow?

See this fruit? Looks like blackberries? I dare not attempt eating one :siam: also did not pluck one to bring back.

Aira Force is huge. Steps are made up of big stones, gravel stones, dirt grounds, varying heights. Quite challenging walking down to see the waterfall, then taking the same route back to the Park Brow carpark. We walked from Park Brow carpark to Aira Force carpark and back to Park Brow.

From Aira Force, we drove to Bassenthwaite Lake.

I took a 20s video. Dunno how to upload here.

Some pics

Blackstock Point and Ouse Bridge are at two opposite ends of Bassenthwait Lake. The water at Ouse Bridge was calmer than Blackstock Point.

After 2 days of driving along lakes and mountains, hubby declared he had enough and we would be visiting charming small towns :rahrah:
