8.4 miles, 4;30 hours, highest point 600 m.
Day 3 of the walk. Stonethwaite to Grasmere, via Helm Crag. Short but hilly today. Only 8.4 miles but started with a steep climb up to 600m and then a walk along the ridge with spectacular views. Great walking weather again. Legs are a bit weary but feet seem to be holding up.
Cap'n Bob leads the way up Stonethwaite Beck.
