White Hill

A long walk, much needed after being cooped up in the office all week - a new experience for a home worker like me. Weather forecasts predicted warm and cloudy with no rain or wind and for once they were spot on. A lovely walk up Whitendale with the heather in full bloom and the cackle of grouse flying everywhere. The tops are wet again after a couple of weeks of rain and my feet were swimming after an hour or two. A great day out in the Bowland Fells and I was sorry to reach the car at the end.
