A wet walk in Grange-over-Sands…..

Where is all that snow? Just a few miles north of us according to the news! I was looking forward to waking to a white over, however the pitter patter of rain on the roof squashed that waking thought and so we splashed our way through our morning walk instead!

The rain did abate during the afternoon, long enough for us to pop down to Grange-over-Sands and take a stroll along the promenade.

Grange-over-Sands is quite an attractive small Victorian town, but as we have seen before in Southport the sand has moved on! It should be renamed Grange-over-Marsh! The sand is there but quite away out over marshland – we might venture out if the weather improves whilst we are here.

The promenade runs all the way along the front with, on a clear day, views across Morecambe Bay, today we could just about make out the snow on the higher ground.

As we returned to site it started to sleet – I wonder what tomorrow will bring?

Two thoughts of the day:

It may be a bit childish but I really want to experience a great dollop of snow ⛄️!

Hitching up and setting up plays havoc with your nails!

  1. Thank you for sharing this. You have reminded me how much I love Grange over Sands – although you perhaps didn’t see it at its best. The walk up Hampsfell with its stone hospice and orientation table is one of my favourites and on a sunny day the views are unbeatable. Taking the train over the estuary to Arnside is another favourite thing to do and of course the Morecambe Bay walk (only with a guide and in summer) is one of the best beach walks you can do.
