As you see from the photos, it was a fine and sunny day. Really lovely in fact. Brilliant blue sky, not a cloud to be seen and really sharp and clear. We are in for spectacular views today we felt. It was a bit windy but hey, that's ok, kept us nice and cool. Could have got a bit hot otherwise.
Did I tell you that it was windy? Really windy. Really, really, really, really windy. I mean, it was seriously blustery. We're talking Marcel Marceau walking into the wind blustery.
It was SOOOOOOOO WINDY. I have never experienced anything like it. It was so funny, a bit scary, exhilarating and a bit bonkers all at the same time. We were laughing our heads off. As was everyone else out walking.
And it was seriously busy up there. So many people out walking. Lots of them taking advantage of the fine weather and lots of them doing the Three Peaks walks (Whernside, Pen-y-Ghent and Ingleborough). It was so crowded when we reached the summit and took the traditional trig point pic. It was heaving in fact, so I'm glad we'd taken advantage of a sheltered spot slightly earlier on for our sarnies and pies.
