Dirtbag Postcards - Beware The Kraken

IMG_0468.JPG

Dear M,

A cold morning that had to start with a cold swim in a deep lake.  It didn’t feel too cold on my body but my hands burnt and ached.  The pain and not being able to escape it reminded me on packing away my tent last winter and the daily battle to ignore hands that screamed at me.  That and the unnerving sense that something menacing lurks in the dark waters made for an exhilarating start to the day!

Now it’s a glorious day with blue skies and crisp, frosty fells all around so it’s be rude if I didn’t head up one.

lots of love

Aleks
