As I previously mentioned in my Weekend in the Woods post, as a developer and spending lots of time sat in front of a computer, sometimes it's good to unwind and 'unplug'.
This weekend I did just that.
Part 1 - A Walk and Beer Festival in Hawkshead
Recently I've been working a lot of hours on a project that I'm excited about and is almost ready to go live.
Harry's post Make it Count and Andrew's tweet
are common place amongst developers I know. I started feeling like I wasn't at my best and so made a conscious effort this weekend to not work on the project I've been heavily involved with over the past week or so.

My good friend Paddy aka @allbeernobelly and I have previously done a walk / beer session in Huddersfield
/allbeernobelly.com/blog/2013/9/15/over-hill-and-real-ale-in-huddersfield (no longer online). It was great and so we decided we should do it again.
Paddy discovered that there was a beer festival on at Hawkshead and suggested we take our next walk / beer session to Hawkshead. This weekend, perfect!
I'm pretty sure Paddy will do a write up of the walk and beer festival, so I'll link it here when it's up.
Some photos I took of the walk and the Hawkshead beer festival:
Here's the beers I tried (unfortunately https://untappd.com doesn't have embed code, hopefully they're working on it, so here's a screenshot):
After a decent walk up a hill, some great beers, food and interesting conversation ranging from meditation, isolation tanks, Egyptology and The Human Flag I felt fully refreshed. Looking forward to our next walk and beer session.
