Hey loves! Happy Saturday ๐Ÿ™‚ What a morning we have had! This morning we woke up at 4am to tackle Hellvelyn and watch the sunrise from striding edge.. however that's not exactly what happened. The journey over to Glennridding was terrible, we came across deer, a hare, sheep and badger's all on the road so ended up arriving later than scheduled. I was still hopeful that the fog would clear and the clouds would disperse as soon as we reached the scary bit.. striding edge. It didn't clear so we enjoyed a hot chocolate and a sandwich in the fog and even had a performance from a little stoat, so cute! I had read about a few fatal accidents that have recently happened on striding edge due to fog so we decided not to take any risks and carry on to Red Tarn and venture back down to the car. Eventually the sun came out and we passed several groups of walkers making their way up the mountain. I was a little envious as I really wanted to make it to the top today but never mind, we can always try again soon. The plan for the rest of the day is to chill, watch a movie and maybe have a nap seeing as though we've been up for almost 12 hours already! So I shall speak to you again tomorrow, love L.
