Lake land – day 5

Fell asleep to the usual sound of rain tapping on the tent, but this time I woke to the same tapping. A quick head poke outside and this was no passing shower, the rain was here to stay.

The hills were covered in low clouds, the rain was heavy and the quite stream had picked up pace. Many are packing up and moving on, if not home. I checked the weather and the bad / rainy weather is here to stay. Do I do the same? Life in a small tent is hard in the rain. I can’t event take off my jacket or boots before getting in the tent, so I bring loads of water in with me.

I have paid up to tomorrow and review it then, I will feel a bit beaten if I go home before then, but if I can’t go walking then there is not much reason for being here.
