Hugh’s first proper walk

We did a circuit around the upper lake at Glendalough today. The primary reason was that it looked like being a nice day and it is important to take one’s chances to get out of the city. I also wanted to see how long I can go carrying him in a front-fitting sling. To balance out the weight, I also carried our pack on my back and used to poles to spread the load.

The walk was a great success. Maybe Lugnaquilla is an option in the not too distant future after all. Pictures to follow when I can figure out how to upload them (wordpress has changed how it handles these things and it’s not functioning properly with either Opera (for Mac) or Safari).

(Firefox came to the rescue. I’m still miffed with wordpress, though.)
