Week 128: Winter Crag
This week is all about the weekend again, with a pretty uneventful week.
The feedback last weekend’s bleakness varied from [paraphrasing] “I love this, please can I come next time?” to “we mostly think similarly but then you go and do something weird like this”. To each their own.
I don’t look at the analytics for my website generally, but it turns out divisive weekends drive views (shout out to Fathom who do privacy-focused analytics that doesn’t do anything creepy with the data).
In contrast to last week, for the four-day Easter weekend, we travelled up to the Lake District with some friends for a relaxing few days staying on a very pretty farm near Ullswater.
I’m really glad I didn’t have to drive up, Marcus and Tammy drove the six hours 😬 (lots of bank holiday traffic).
Cumbria’s always incredibly beautiful and worth the extra journey time.
On Saturday we did a ~9-mile walk and tackled 4 different Wainrights (Alison is trying to walk 30 of them this year). The walk was tough and boggy in places but a lot of fun. It was perfect walking weather, chilly with a bit of a breeze but warm in the sun ❤️
We spent the low-internet evenings playing board games. People really enjoyed Railroad Ink so I’m glad we took it with us. We also played a lot of Dobble which is always incredibly stressful and breaks my brain.
Charlotte and I set up an easter egg hunt, very cute seeing our friends get excited and competitive about it.
Back to normality now. I’m gonna finish the weekend by going to see Dungeons & Dragons with the Whitechapel crew.
