Buttermere to Black Sail Hut (07/10/11)

So off we set from Buttermere destination Black Sail Hut for an over night stay the weather was on our-side.
The hike would take in Red Pike via Bleaberry Tarn which was where we stopped for a refueling.
When we reached the summit the views opened up all-around,with pictures took we headed down to meet up with the forest track which shadows the River Liza.
Black Sail was in sight and a warm welcome was given by the two wardens of the hut followed by some Cumberland Ale and a hearty meal. Most people staying were inclined to chat but you always get somebody who wants nothing to do with the rest of the world.After a nights sleep it was a full breakfast that greeted us thank you again to our hosts and also to my fellow walker Stuart who did our washing up.
Time to pack up and return to Buttermere with rain in the air but we did not mind the journey had done its job.
