Somewhere different

That's where we went today!  Parked the car near The Watermill at Ings.  Sure I heard it was dog friendly but they didn't take me there!  In fact we crossed the main road & went up a lane past the Ings Mill Caravan Park.  We kept going up before turning on to a bridle path that took us across several fields of sheep where I was kept on a lead.  Apart from one when I found a dead rabbit to eat & of course I will not go back to mistress until I have finished. She left me so I had to be quick & play catch up!
Eventually we got to an enclosed bridle path signposted Kentmere Hall.  The views were pretty impressive & of course Pika & I had freedom to run.
We had a steep stony path to walk down after we had passed some new barn conversions.  Once again mistress thinks it would be cool to live in the countryside.  If there's lots of fields I can run about in then I agree with her.

Soggy Doggy

That was me.  Very damp indeed.  It tipped it down for the last half mile of our walk back from up the "noddle"  Yewbarrow for non locals. I class myself as a local now, we've been to Witherslack so many times I think it is mistresses second home!  The views were good as the sun was out on the top.  The Kent Estuary was clear as was Ingleborough in the distance.  The school children have shelters built in the woods on the way up where they have outdoor lessons.  Mistress says it must be great to have lessons on the outdoors in the outdoors!  Whatever that means!
Of the course she didn't think to get her phone camera out so no pictures & the ones she took up there last year can't be found!! Still no doubt we'll go up there again sometime.
There are a couple of photos of me taken yesterday on the playing field near home.

I found a ball which I refused to give up until after I had been in the stream for a lie down
