Fun in the sun

What a scorching weekend, who needs far flung travel when you can go camping in the Lake District in glorious sunshine. Six of us headed up to Thirlmere on Saturday morning for some scrambling, a bbq and some beers.

We set off up Fisherplace Gill, a fairly steep rocky ditch that flows into Thirlmere resevoir, which was great for clambering up over all the trees and saw a few people getting a bit wet.

After lunch we had a little abseil down one of the falls, making sure we were all absolutely soaking!

The evening followed with a carnivorous bbq and a few beers.

Sunday saw a trip to Derwent Water and a paddle/swim around Derwent Isle before returning to the pub for a well earned dinner.
