Confessions of a compulsive weather watcher (Part One)

Thorpe Pellew Canal

As a self confessed compulsive weather watcher, I just love it when a plan comes together, We were planning a trip last week, I was monitoring the weather as usual for several days it all seems to be following a very predictable like its gonna be best in the West. The plan was for an early start, drive over and do something on the East Lakes, I get up early turn the TV on and find its now tipping it down in the Lakes.
Change of plan over breakfast.
Unlike B&B's and Youth Hostels you don't have to book our huts in advance so we had no commitments, we knew it was raining today BUT it should be fine for the rest of the week.
We pack up the gear and decide to stay on the east opting to go for a walk round the Arboretum at Thorpe Pellew an absolute stunning venue, I hope you enjoy the photos.
Later in the day travelled across to the Lake District and caught the last of the rain, on arrival at the hut we found a team from Scotland organising the drying room they looked like drowned rats after being out on the hills all day.
I lit the fire and we got the roast and baked tatties in the oven, I just love it when a plan comes together.
