Snowdon – Scarfell Pike – Ben Nevis (kinda) –> The Anniversary Series
We’ve got a bit of a tradition going on with wedding anniversaries. They must be memorable, cold & preferably spent outdoors.
For our first one we attempted the 3 Peak Challenge.
We kicked off proceedings on a Wednesday & goofed around on Snowdon…..
…BUT WAIT!!! Let’s see that picture in all its original glorious goofiness……
Anyway……on the Thursday we hiked half way up Scarfell Pike…..
….before noticing that Henry had suffered a blister on Snowdon and the whole trip was now off…..
We’d also forgotten the memory card in our camera (yes. really.) but managed to capture some moments on smart phones [think *memories*. not *quality* ^_^]. The van hadn’t been converted and so we were allowed to sleep in proper beds, have nice warm showers and could go to the toilet any time we wanted to #bonus.
On the Friday we carried on to Scotland but only managed to see Ben Nevis from a distance and had to come up with some alternative sight seeing trips that didn’t involve lots of walking with sore paws on ice’n snow #bummer. We picked Loch Shiel, the Glenfinnan Monument and the Harry Potter bridge.
So there we have it. First anniversary. Done.
Who knows. Maybe one of these days [with a fresh batch of dogs, ha!] we’ll have another go.
Disclaimer: these priceless memories/low quality photographs were taken in 2010 with mobile phones. They’re never ever gonna win awards but will always remind me of our first wedding anniversary. Awwwww ^_^
