consistent inconsistency

giving up

Today Beth and I attempted to walk up Scafell Pike. It's only 978m, so shouldn't have given us too much bother. However, the weather conspired against us and about half way up we decided to turn back.


It was getting foggier and foggier, and we were being pelted by wind and fine rain that was soaking us and making the paths slippy. It just didn't seem worth it.

It's odd having to turn back from something though. I don't think I can think of any walk that I've given up on before - I think I'm usually well prepared and pragmatic on planning so disasters rarely happen. This time though we half ignored the weather forecast hoping it would get nicer, which, sadly, it didn't.

Oh well; the mountain isn't going anyway. I'm sure we'll back.
