Day 1: Lake District - Dock Tarn

Tuesday 19th June, 2018

Super excited, we set the tent up immediately and with starving bellies we decided to dive straight into the cooler and get out the pease pudding and veggie ham stotties. Yes! What a treat.

Then with full bellies we decided to hunt out some of the easier walking routes and see where we fancied going for our first day. Too eager and full bellied as we forgot our usual essentials and as it was so cold on the campsite we definitely had too many layers on. 

With just a drive down to the next village we parked up and headed off. It was a lovely walk alongside the river, passing all the sheep and even passing a local pub we've always remembered so fondly. Then without any mention of a steep incline on the directions, the next bit got prrreeettttty shit haha. Stairs! Loose rocky stairs all the way to the top of one of the Lakes peaks. Unprepared was an understatement and had we not been carrying a silly amount of layers and lacking in any food or drink, we would have been fine.

Once we made it to the top of the peak there was a lush walk along the river and waterfalls flowing down from the lake and once we made it to the lake itself it was so peaceful and calm. Dock Tarn has a funny way of making you feel like you're high up in the clouds and not at all at the same time. After a little while we decided to head back down, almost got lost too which was great, but we made it and the views were beautiful. As per.
