Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Reasons going West

Reasons going West

Leaving the hills behind for a few days and heading west to New York.




My loft is full of my son’s ‘stuff’ – but I am doing the visiting..

Checked in, alarms set and contemplating the joys of a long haul flight in the cheap seats.  Convincing myself there are joys:

  • The end will be good
  • for 8 hours
    • No, one but no one can call me, text me or email me
    • I can read for 8 hours without feeling guilty
    • or write …
    • watch films back to back
    • think
    • sleep
    • dream

May be long haul flights are not so bad after all.

A few pictures from my last visit in 2010. In the summer.  I don’t think I will be leaving the cold behind.
