Hi Caz love,

Ellen must have been thinking about you.

We had a quick look at our local reservoir (very pretty and lake-like but not in the same league as Coniston) didn't have time for a long walk but Ellen wanted a swim!

Bet you had a lovely afternoon :o)

Hi Caz

Bet you enjoyed it really! :-)

We climbed the 'Old Man of Coniston' a few years ago. Unfortunately it was very misty when we got to the top!

I was very carefully making my way into Coniston Lake this afternoon, only for kids to push me over, boy was it cold but I swam , reminded me of being a teen and swimming back and forth across the lake.


Hope you are all well,
