This year, the decision was made to go to the Lake District. We hadn’t been there for a number of years and it seemed like a good idea at the time.
All the arrangements were made fairly early in the year with the assumption that the Covid-19 situation would have eased and around 10 members signed up and booked. There were no signs of anything improving so one by one members cancelled out until a hardy 4 were left. I felt sorry for Cathryn from Skelwith Bridge Hotel who put up with me changing arrangements , sometimes on a daily basis. But she (and the hotel) was very welcoming, the rooms were comfortable and the food was great. Just ask about the Steak pies – they’re wonderful.
We’d chosen a number of different venues to photograph, Skelwith Bridge itself, Elterwater, River Brathay, The Langdales Crummock Water and Buttermere. A good time had by all and some excellent photographs too. Here’s a selection.
