The wind appears to have moved on for the time being leaving us with a grey day, a bit damp at times but not enough to put us off. Today we headed off for Allonby Bay, 5.5 miles of mostly sandy beach with big scars of stones in places.
The coastal road runs behind the beach with little parking spaces intermittently along the way. We parked up at the southern end (Crosscanonby) and wandered along towards Allonby. As the beach was deserted we happily meandered our way along with the aid of a couple of tennis balls and thrower.
At Allonby, a small village with a couple of cafes and beach shops, the beach just kept on going into the distance but we slowly made our way back to the car.
Two thoughts of the day:
Bearing in mind how busy The Lakes get, I wander how busy these fabulous long beaches ever get?
One of us is wiped!
