Stone Circle and a Boat

Stone Circle and a Boat

Today we were meant to climb Cat Bells, We were to get a boat across the water to get there. Dad phoned the boat people who said because of covid the boat would not be stopping at cat bells. Dad said we should go see the Castlerigg Stone Circle. Stones in a park dad? OK. We set off as if we were going into town but instead of taking a path down hill we went up hill into a field beside another campsite.The field had lots of sheep in it so I had to stay on leash. Once out of the field, leash off, ball.

We came to another field and there was a pony in it, dad kept our distance because Poppys can frighten ponies. Where are we going dad?

After the field we crossed a busy road then entered a small county lane, i was off leash again and got to explore lots of smells. All of a sudden mum picked me up and lifted me over a wall, we were at the stone park. This stone park was different from the ones dad has been taking me to back home, there were hardly any stones in it.

we passed a few small islands with houses on them. As we got closer to cat bells I was very happy we were not climbing them.
