Three Peaks and Buttermere

I took Ben and Sam up to see Grandma and Grandad at Flannagill this weekend. We had a full and memorable time of it. ON the Saturday I competed in the Three Peaks race and was pleased to finish the 24 miles/1608m ascent/descent course in 4:15. I took some crap photos on the way around. A full recollection to follow.

On the Sunday, we drove up to the northern lakes for a wonderfully moving lovely walk around Buttermere. There is a strong emotional and spiritual resonnance about this place for me as it evokes many childhood recollections. So three generations of Reids made the familiar circuit of the lake. A full report, and hopefully movie, to follow.
