Christmas in Durham

 This year for the first time in many, many years we spent Christmas away from home.  We drove through the rain up to Durham on Christmas Eve to spend a relaxing few days with my Mum.  From here we zipped across to the Lake District to do a bit of walking the turkey off.  The weather as you can see was very character forming, but a good time was had by all.  Red Tarn at the foot of Helvellyn was our target, the summit being lost in cloud and storm-force winds and very snowy to-boot.  On the way out the next day we had a brief visit to Aira Force, a large waterfall that was very spectacular given the amount of rainfall.
