Monday 26th May 2014...Day 49!!

Good morning before we get into today have to update the scrabble situation...we actually played two games last night and Janet won the first game to tie the score at 3 - 3 and i managed to squeak out a victory in the second game to go ahead 4-3 and of course Mally what can I say!!!! Woke up to rain but it cleared by 9.30am and we got packed up and we drove to the village of Coniston where J& M left me to do a 9 mile hike up to the summit of Old Man Coniston at 2700 feet....... The clouds hide where I have to go and it was tough two hours all up hill but beautiful scenery!!! Made it to the summit and then started down the other side of the mountain and had lunch at this wonderful little lake!!! Continuing on I came down and round the corner found this amazing beautiful sight!!!!! 6 hours later I was back in the village where I started it was a very tough hike but it felt good. This is where i was at the peak in the middle!! This lake is really famous for this man and his land speed record interesting to Google him!!! Janet keeps on providing wonderful meals...I did the dishes...a hot long shower and after this our final scrabble game. I have enjoyed this week of course being with J & M has been special and we all get along so well and the hikes and the sights were fantastic. So tomorrow we head home and then the Camino will take my time.....thanks for coming to the Lake District with me!! Yashi Kochi!!!!
