High Seat wander

On the fifth day of my break in the lake district i decided to walk to High seat via High Tove again leaving the car at the campsite (spot the theme).

After a walk along side Derwent water and a long drag up a road section(past surprise view) i eventually came to the hidden valley that leads to Watendlath tarn. In the valley there seemed to be a large scout meeting.

As i walked along the valley i spotted a Buzzard flying overhead (a bird i have found notoriously difficult to photograph due to focus issues) i got my camera ready and attempted to photograph it. (Decide for yourselves on the result).

Upon reaching the Watendlath tarn i began the long slog (with many false summits) up hill towards High Tove. Unfortunately this is the part of the walk that is a pain, the route from High Tove to High Seat (is it called the pewitts?) is notoriously boggy but i hoped that it would be dry after a dry few days ha! No chance splodge! straight up to the knee, luckily I didn’t lose my trail shoe.

After the struggle to High Seat the going was a lot easier and i made good progress to Bleaberry Fell and i stopped a while taking in the good weather and the fine views before heading down to Walla Crag.

Upon reaching Walla Crag there was a few Paragliders taking off and as i made my way back to Keswick i could see that quite a few more had joined them.
