Lake District 3000-er’s 2014
Wednesday 4th June 2014 Travel to Boot
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 4 highest mountains in England (the only ones over 3000 feet) and quite a few others en route, 85 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 have 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.
