A bit more cloud and breeze around today, but some lovely hazy sunshine during the afternoon. Another quiet walk was the order of the day today and so off to Flookburgh we went. Parking up in the village centre we set off in search of the sea and after a mile or so as the road ran out, we joined a track running along the top of Old Embankment.
Several hundred metres of marshland separated us from miles of the low tide sand of Morecambe Bay and the sea, until we reached Cowpren Point where we were able to scramble over the grassy hummocks and step over the little water inlets onto the beach.
Not the prettiest beach and like yesterday a bit on the muddy side but plenty of space for Poppydog to have a good run around with out causing any bother!
And look across Cartmel Sands at the mountains of The Lakes in the distance – can’t see any snow on the peaks anymore!
From here to Sandy Gate the path took us up the estuary, where we followed the lanes back into Flookburgh – a good 5 mile round walk with not a soul in sight.
Two thoughts of the day:
Baptiste – clear as mud as per!!
I always wondered where all the sand off Kennack and Kynance went to during the winter – well its all up here in Morecambe Bay!!!
