Wandering lonely as cloud.... though too early for daffodils

Just went out for a brisk walk to blow away the cobwebs.
Crossed the Rothay at White Moss bridge, up through woods, and right up to Loughrigg Terrace. Nearly knocked over by gale force westerly wind. It was coming from Easedale, called " the black quarter" by Dorothy Wordsworth, as the west wind often brings rain - you see it sweeping down the valley to Grasmere.
Anyway, today it looked lovely- little pink clouds, a hint of sunset.
But- the wind was so fierce I turned round and went the other way, down past Rydal Caves, to Pelter Bridge, back via Rydal Woods and Rydal shore.
Good hour's walk, cobwebs gone. Saw the usual sheep, but not one, solitary, single person. This is one of the most popular paths- I've never had it to myself before. Odd!
Come to the Lakes! ( not White Moss just now, we're closed till March)
