Started off badly – dawn walk on a Sunday but nice breakfast and big kip in car – so good recovery.

Coniston is a town and lake in the lake district but it isn’t really a lake because it is a water – honestly do I look like I care!!!!!!!!!!

Slight diversion for breakfast at Booths in Windermere and that is also a town and a ……………

But what a treat – full of people with dogs, so many people who like dogs fantastic. Also we met number 4 with girlfriend and their two pals – so there were 6 potential sources of treats and entertainment.

They spent a disproportionate amount of time in the homemade cake tent. But then we had a big wander – there were dog competitions – for all sorts of smooth and rough categories – I was a little taken abavck when they called for the two year old rough bitches.

Big disappointment for number 1 – the ferrets didn’t turn up – heartbreaking huh?

Have you seen Cumberland wrestling? Some strange outfits but great fun.

And it was by the side of the lake so I got to go in and cool off and to swim in my second lake – except, remember, it only looks like a lake.

All in all it was brilliant and it was sunny most of the day and not a drop of rain. I won’t mention that they wouldn’t let me run amok in the sheep and goats.

Also didn’t quite get the walking stick competition, number 1 was enthralled,   probably his age.

Home via Ambleside big walk by the lake, alfresco dinner and fish and chips for the humans.

Sweet dreams all the way home.
