I’m in the Lake District with good friend Al from Gloucester. We have joined up for our annual walking cum photography trip. We are walking for 8 days over the highest mountains in England, 75 miles in total, starting and finishing at the Woolpack in Eskdale.
Coincidentally this is also the day before the Boot Beer Festival begins but they have quite a few beers on already. What a stroke of luck!
Tomorrow we walk Scafell and Scafell Pike ending up in the Wasdale Head Hotel. Forecast is a bit iffy, hope they got it wrong.
Have so far tried 3 beers, the Goodhews Dry Stout is currently way in front of anything else we’ve tried. A jolly nice pint.
