A good day out despite the weather warnings. We started off at Elterwater in heavy rain & headed to the Britannia for coffee. The hanging baskets were lovely with three roses outside the door (Kate, Nina Jenny).
We were not sure if the river crossing would be possible.
But it was & Nina was obviously enjoying it!
We made our way to Cathedral Cavern. This was the entrance tunnel.

It is spectacular as these photos show. I spent some time exploring and went along the long tunnel where a torch was a necessity.

No matter how hard she tried Kate couldn’t get the pound coin out of the money tree.
Colwith Force was spectacular.
A beer in the Talbot at Skelwith Bridge was good before finishing with a walk over the hills to Ambleside. This beer is brewed in Wasdale and is named after the chief chef’s dog “Bogi”.
The AFWC 2015 Camping Weekend at Goathland was brilliant. Friday night saw Geoff’s BBQ in full swing with food provided by everyone and especially Eddy who kindly provided extra beer! (even the 10 million midges enjoyed it!)
Saturday night was spent in the Mallyan Spout Hotel and on Sunday some took to the Roman Road, some to Danby and some of us to Beck Hole with Lunch in the quaint pub there. A good time was had by all!
