Glencaple and Caerlaverock Castle….

Another dry but mostly cloudy day. We fancied a bit of a run on a beach today but unfortunately the tides are not on our side and as we arrived at Glencaple the estuary was full to the brim with not a scrap of sand to be seen.

We watched the local Nith Lifeboat on exercise for a short while before wandering along a sort of shoreside footpath until it became increasingly boggy underfoot.

To get in a proper walk we headed back to the Caerlaverock Nature Reserve and walked through the woodlands to the Castle before heading back to site.

Two thoughts of the day:

We shall have to go a bit further afield to the west to enjoy some proper beach walks.

Oh The Durrell’s are back tonight – another dream of mine – living in the middle of nowhere by the sea in a warm climate! Not overly keen on all the animals in the house but hey ho!
