A walk across the vast empty sands at Powfoot….

After a couple of fairly long driving days, today we are staying put and going to enjoy the continued sunshine with a walk along the beach from site.

With the tide a long way out, there is just miles of albeit slightly muddy sand. We walked into Powfoot as the river Pow cuts a deep channel across the beach and whilst it is no great obstacle for Poppydog, I wasn’t keen on getting wet!

This time we ventured out to the other side of the village, where the road ends in a car park and holiday park and wow look at all this empty sand!

There is a brisk cold wind blowing but even so, the sun is shining and I’m surprised to find the beach practically empty, Poppydog is in her element as she flies around chasing anything and nothing.

We spent three hours walking along the beach and back, covering 6 miles (me and countless more for Poppydog) – we shall both sleep well tonight!

As the white cottages of the sea side of Powfoot came back into view we took a closer look at the old tidal swimming pool (back before the days of ‘Elf and Safety’) bringing a whole new dimension to the term ‘infinity pool’!

On the way back we had the full brunt of the wind against us – I was ready for a cup of tea!

Two thoughts of the day:

You can’t ever imagine the above beach being busy!

Ever heard a pair of swans flying overhead? Quite magical!
