16th Feb. 04 - Naddle Fell
Today it was confirmed that Louise was expecting my first Grandchild due around 27th August. This is the 12 week scan. Although it's only 6cm long, you can see "its" face, nose, eye, ear and hand! Wonderful. Apparently everything is fine.

We went on a 5.5mile walk starting at the top end of Thirlmere, climbing up Wren Crag and then along the glorious ridge to High Rigg with its views across the Valley in front of Blencathra. Then we descended to the Church in the Vale of St John's before walking back along St John's Beck.

You can see Blencathra in the distance. Ladder stile for a rest!
