Stef's birthday weekend in Eskdale

It was Stef's birthday on Friday and we've had a weekend camping in Eskdale in a pod at the Caravan and Camping Club site at Boot to celebrate. The weather was amazing considering how wet and windy it'd been at home and in the Midlands last week

On Saturday we had a good run over Whin Rigg and Illgill Head and back via Burnmoor Tarn with Chris and John. Last night we had dinner at the Brook House Inn and today we did a short walk from the campsite along the Esk. The photo above was taken looking upstream from the footbridge, and close to where we saw a dipper by what I reckon would make a good swimming hole (in warmer weather!). This afternoon we called in Broughton on the way home and ate at the Square Cafe The pea and mint soup was brilliant and we'll definitely be back
