A brief pause by Sow How Tarn before . . .
finding a comfortable spot for 'elevenses'
Detouring to avoid the mud - probably the order of the day after all the rain we have had
Still, all that water provides some good reflections
A few 'ups' and 'downs' around here, as we approach . . .
the Monument on Cartmel Fell
A rocky descent as we leave the monument
And some rocks to provide a good seat for lunch
At least the stepping stones aren't completely submerged!
