[with] Becky [weather] Warm with light SW wind. Visibility good at YH below, but poor towards Northern Fells. Improved by early afternoon & good views from The Old Man - Bank holiday walk. Last few places at car park, & hoping that sun dries mud at rear wheels of car when we get back, otherwise Becky will need to push us out. Pleasant walking up to Dow crag. Horrible biting midges on trig. Stopped for lunch overlooking Goats Water & then a steady climb to The Old Man, to find more midges. Passed walkers huffing & puffing up from the quarries. Our route up much more pleasant. Stopped at Low water to soak up the sun & bathe feet, & dared Becky to swim over to near by rocks-which she couldn't resist doing. Easy walk back to car, & mud had dried.
