GLW1901 : Stan, Ollie, Jenkin and Robin

Saturday 2nd February 2019

You have to grab the chances when you can.  Or at least, we do.  Here was the opportunity not only to enjoy a meal and film deal at Zefferellis but also to have a Great Little Walk beforehand and a stop-over in Ambleside afterwards.

Margaret wanted to get her feet into snow but something not too strenuous as she has been out of training for quite a while.  We decided on a slimmed down version of Thursday's BOOTboys outing- BB1905.

We left the car at the Ambleside Townhouse where we would be staying the night and headed up to Jenkin's Crag then along Robin Lane to High Skeghyll.  After a peep at Low Skeghyll, we returned by more or less the same route as we had come.

The ground underfoot at times was icy and we were glad to have had the microspikes with us.

Weather good and views excellent.

On returning to the Ambleside Townhouse, we enjoyed yet another fine Lake District view.  This time of daffodils fluttering by the side of the lake.  Strangely, however, the lake was Ullswater not Windermere.  It was the wall paper.  The view out of the window of this "superior" room was less photogenic.  The fire escape, the staff entrance and discarded advertising panels.

In fact those outside looking in had a far better view than those inside looking out!

Our visit to Zeffs was a success.  Margaret didn't think I would like the Stan & Ollie film but somewhat to my surprise I did.  And vice-versa.  And we both enjoyed our meal afterwards.

We set off home the next morning motivated to grab another chance to get away as soon as we can but we won't be staying at the Townhouse again!
