The weekend stay at Patterdale was great fun. To tide you over until I've finished the report, here are a few pics from Friday night:


 The Plough above Place Fell

 Jupiter over Kirkstone

Orion rising over Angletarn Pikes

Sorry about the poor quality pics. Doing hand-held long-exposures in sub-zero conditions wasn't easy....

and neither was the photography.

    Cracking photos and the double entendre at the end made me chuckle 🙂
    Look forward to the full post

    This blonde goes into a bar and asks for a double-entendre. So the bartender gave her one.

    My mates say that I’m crap at telling jokes. I always punch up the fuck-line.

    Looking forward to the full post. Lovely 'pics, but how do we know thats Jupiter? Might just be Uranus (sorry).

    While we're on the subject...

    I was in the pub chatting to a Gypsy girl when she asked me if I'd like to go back to her place for a good time.
    She wasn't kidding - I went on the waltzers, the dodgems and the ghost train. I even won me a goldfish!

    Should probably add that this didn't happen this weekend in Patterdale 🙄
