Day 2 was down to Grasmere, swimming the length and then a short walk through to Rydal water swimming it’s length from the beach. A few of the group left to go home from Ambleside while the rest of us headed up to the spectacular Buckstone’s Jum for a dive and dip. Then back to Langdale YHA over the top of Loughrigg Fell - which by now felt a bit bigger than it looked.

That evening was quiz night at the Britannia Inn at Elter Water. Day 3 was over the tops to Stickle Tarn and a clim up Jake’s Rake for those with the energy. Returning, on the bus from Langdale.
