Loughrigg from Elterwater

Time for a walk from the house and a trip to Chesters, which I managed to fit in with ticking off a Wainwright that Poppy hadn't done, all in all a great route!

Difficulty: 4
Walkers: Tim, Caroline, Grace (13), Evie (10), Poppy (7)
10:16, 0.0km 0h00 0m, Start (74)
12:54, 5.7km 2h38 431m, Loughrigg Fell (335, Wainwright)
16:38, 12.9km 6h22 549m, End (67)

 The house in Elterwater led up to Grasmere, then round to the caves.

Looking back to Elerwater and the house.

Typical view of our walking party. Poppy is lost, presumed dead, Grace leading and avoiding photos, Dave checking email/satnav, Lily staying close but not alongside parents, Jo and Caroline being social, Evie trying to lose us. 

Grasmere. 

Most of the time there was little view, to be honest.

Caves!

Climbing up for lunch.  We had multiple requests to stop earlier and do less climbing before calories.

Poppy at Loughrigg Fell. 

Caroline trying to take some serious photos with her serious camera, girls not being serious. 

We stopped at Chesters and had cake (Grace had hot chocolate with large marshmallows), before returning back to Elterwater and to the pub.  Evie does like J2O, I think she was unimpressed by the photo.
