March 8th -- Staveley, Cumbria
Overcast until mid-afternoon when the sun appeared. Blowy on the high ground.

Starting in Staveley the C walk climbed up to Potter Tarn and then a gradual descent along paths and fields to join the Dales Way and return along the River Kent.
Always nice to have a spare!

The A walk started at Plumgarths on the A591 going over Cunswick Scar & Scout Scar then down to Underbarrow then into Staveley
Smiles of walking still to come Fine views on a fine day

Some Riff Raff we encountered Helen watches in awe as Nancy shows of her Proper Cup
Where's Wally waves from behind the wall The As take the chance to grab some rays
The As bravely press on resisting massive temptation

Roger's B walk dropped off at Low Sizergh on the A591 going over Scout & Cunswick Scars to Ratherheath Tarn and via Ashes Coppice into Staveley
A and B walkers meeting up on Scout Scar Paul is the gate keeper in training
The clouds have lifted and the sun is trying to shine

Roy and Mike guided their B group on a circuit (complete with exciting detour!) going North to Kentmere via Staveley Head Fell and returning via Kentmere Tarn to Staveley.

And finally in the Micro-brewery and the nearby pub...
Tony nods off as Alan's latest joke hits home without mercy Good times..
..all round Roger starts getting animated as the beer flows
They can't make it quick enough Contemplative pub party
