Solid As A Rock

DSC_3039

I’m not good at getting up early. And for once I had to have a rest on the motorway. I needed a break.

DSC_3040

I needed a pot of tea and a bit of a bun.

DSC_3041

I watch the other cars go by as the sun comes up. Not far to Kendal now. about one hour away. And the last time I was in Kendel was 1990. Yeah a long time ago.

After day one of the two day meeting I headed to find my bed for the night and then considered what I was going to do with myself.

DSC_3046

As my travel lodge was in the middle of nowhere, I decide to head towards even more nothingness. To the valley I love so much of Chapel Stile and Great Langdale.

 DSC_3048

I love the hills here.

DSC_3047

So magnificence.

DSC_3050

From here I consider my options.

DSC_3051

Yep I know where I’m going.

DSC_3053

But do you?

DSC_3056

Single lane maddness.

DSC_3057

And of course the warning signs are there.

DSC_3058

The car struggles, and the road in nowhere carries on as far as the eyes can see.

DSC_3060

In a way it is a wonderful drive.

DSC_3061

And soon on the horizon we are there.

DSC_3063

I park up for a moment, take in the air and well grab a stone.

DSC_3069

From here we carry on upwards for a while longer.

DSC_3070

Before I park up

DSC_3071

A short walk and I am here.

DSC_3080

Here I’ve been before, several times, but here I am again.

DSC_3092

Hardnott Roman Fort.

DSC_3095

The view as the sunsets is wonderful. Just me up here and the view. Nothing else. I have a look around…

DSC_3097

And put some rocks in the boot. You never know when they will come in handy.

DSC_3098

As I drive along I see a very tempting sight.

DSC_3099

But realise it will be best to get out of this wilderness before it gets darker.

DSC_3100

I turn the lights on. Perhaps I can see what's coming now.

DSC_3107

I head back to Chapel Stile

2017-09-22_09-27-30

And a place I know that I’m happy at.

DSC_3109

I settle in for the night and get my writing pen out.

DSC_3111

There’s nothing like a place to relax and write. I just have so very little to write about.

DSC_3115

And so eventually its time to leave.

DSC_3117

And refind my place for the night.

DSC_3119

……

Its one comfy bed.
