The end of a wonderful summer
This time last week, if you'd have asked me 'are you looking forward to Winter?' I'd have honestly said 'absolutely not' but after a walk and chit chat with my Mum this evening, wrapped up in a knitted jumper, an oversized waterproof jacket, my woolly socks and walking boots, something about the cooler air and sun setting early just felt special and I've decided I'm going to fully embrace the colder days and darker nights, instead of continuously moaning about it and wishing my life away - who's with me?
We had a really lovely Summer and I feel like this was the first year we really made the most of our surroundings. We've swam, paddle boarded, hiked, camped and ran more than ever. I'm still itching to discover some new places off the beaten track and hopefully we can over the Winter months when the Dales and the Lakes are a little quieter. That is what I'm looking forward to the most, Winter hikes and hopefully some Winter camps!
