Fortunately the overnight rain had worked its way through by the morning, leaving us with a bit of sunshine through the afternoon, though still very wild. Today we set off for St Bees, a smallish coastal village, just beyond Sellafield. A lovely long stone backed sandy bay awaited.
Looming up above the north end of the beach is St Bees Head, the only stretch of Heritage Coastline between Wales and Scotland – I think we will go and take a look.
We clambered up the headland our efforts rewarded by the spectacular view of the bay.
Up on top the wind was pretty fierce and unfortunately the views out to sea not great – we should have been able to see the Isle of Man and Scotland. In the distance we could see St Bees Lighthouse on the north end of the headland (the most westerly point of Northern England).
I’m afraid we didn’t make it that far, as the wind was just too strong, taking much of the pleasure out of the walk – but hopefully we shall get the chance to try again. Instead we made our way back to the beach.
Enjoying a good play and walk along the beach.
Ok so not the walk we had planned but it was dry, sunny and very nice!
Two thoughts of the day:
Plans are made to be amended, changed and improved – they are a ‘work in progress’.
Life is actually a ‘work in progress’.
