The last two months it has rained almost every day, so what are the chances of a dry day on Christmas Day? Er, none! We are promised dry till midday though, so we pack up our lunch and head off. In a case of deja vu, we park at Fellside with the initial intention of heading along Dale Beck. Another couple leave their car just ahead of us and head that way, so we change our minds! We have absolutely no intention of walking with others. We are antisocial. We like to walk in our own company or the company of people we chose to walk with, not random strangers! So after a cheery chat and wishing them a Merry Christmas we opt for the direct approach.

Approaching the Summit, there's a fresh sprinkling of snow up here.
It's cold on the top. Breeze puts her jumper on whilst we stop for lunch
Traditional Christmas Fare. Cheese and Onion Pasty and Tomato Soup!
My first ever (and possibly last) attempt at an iPhone selfie!
Heading Down to Nether Brow
I know this is crap, but for some reason I love it! Two back paws that seem to sum up what a happy little puppy they belong to! We're nearly back at the car now and it's just starting to mizzle, by the time we were home less than half an hour later it was siling it down. Perfect timing! Time to open the presents before we head down to Nick and Rose's to get well and truly fed and watered this evening!
