Good job I postponed tea and went for a quick wander on Wednesday evening, as the sun was going down.

I stupidly risked going out on the Thursday afternoon, as it appeared to have cleared up a bit. This lasted until I got up in to the hills, when it started up again with a complete washout (rivers of muddy water running down the hills).
|Fairfield Horseshoe almost invisible below the constant clouds|
|Windermere disappearing behind the clouds and rain|
|And I'd managed to stay nearly dry until this point!|
I had to sit in my room with my laptop on my legs to try and dry my poor trousers before the dinner!
