England's highest waterfall - Cautley Spout
Hello! How the bloody 'ell are ya? I'm totally slacking on posts but I don't have much to say at the moment, so Sunday posts will have to do for the foreseeable future! Hopefully that will all change in a month or so though! Oh and we are off to Dorset for a weekend in July, so I will most definitely be sharing that with you. Anyone have any recommendations on what to see/do down there? I want to make sure we make the most of it and see as much as possible. Although, we are on a strict budget so nothing too expensive! We know we want to see the Jurassic coast and Durdle Door but other than that I'm a little stuck. Today we slept in until like 11am! I actually could not believe it when I woke up and checked the time.. I haven't slept in like that in so long but to be honest it was well needed and I'm glad I got a good nights sleep for once. This afternoon Josh, Dad and I drove to the foot of Cautley Spout which is around a 5 minute drive from our front door. It's the highest waterfall in England and it's literally on our doorstep! I don't know why I've never made the effort to walk to it before because it is really beautiful and such a nice walk back over the tops and into Sedbergh, especially if we can't be bothered to drive into the Lake District. It took us around 3 and a half hours to walk just short of 8 miles. We encountered sunshine, rain and even hail stone, it was freezing! Thankfully I packed a waterproof (or shall I say Josh's waterproof) but even that was letting water in by the time we reached the bottom. We stopped off at the Black Bull for a drink before coming home to a roast beef dinner, courtesy of my Grandma and now I'm slumped on the sofa, resembling a baby hippo, after eating way too many roast potatoes and M&S strawberry trifle (my favourite fyi). I think we will have an early night and maybe start the first episode of Killing Eve. I've heard mixed reviews but I still can't wait to watch it! Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed your Sunday, whatever you may have been doing. Fathers or no fathers, I'm sure you will have someone to thank for all that they do. Speak soon, L.
