Boot in Eskdale

5th October — A long drive in consistently damp weather took my wife and me to Boot for the recording of episode #66 of Countrystride. A wild walk over the fell by Eel Tarn with David Felton, bracketed with lovely conversations with author Patricia Nolan at the Boot Inn and Noel & Janet Baines at Hows Farm.

Touching their nineties the Baines’ warm welcome to the Hows Farm an especially joyful occasion
Proving that there is no such thing as bad weather, only appropriate clothing, here I am warm and dry amid the persistent rain flurries
