2007 07 10 - Black Sails and Wetherlam with Paul D.

The weather was not as good as it had been for the previous day's walk over Whiteside and Hopegill Head. It was a grey, murky day with the sun well hidden by cloud throughout the walk. At least there was no rain. We followed the path through Coppermines Valley to Swirl Hause via Levers Water and visited the summit of Black Sails on our way to Wetherlam. We had a fine couple of pints of Hawkshead bitter at  The Sun Hotel in Coniston after the walk.
