Binsey - Lake District Walk

Sunday 2nd December 2007

It just kept on raining today so before we headed to my sister's to drop off Christmas presents we made a quick dash up Binsey. On the way there we hoped the weather might have been improving and as we approached Binsey its top was clear of cloud. Sadly by the time we had got our boots and waterproofs on the cloud had dropped right back down and so we had no views and got quite wet as well.
