Wet overnight and still a bit damp in the morning though by lunchtime it had brightened up with a bit of sunshine for us later in the afternoon. We are not done with Berwick yet, so we again wandered down to town, over the old bridge and this time headed along the riverbank inland, getting a closet look at the beautiful Royal Border Bridge – there is no denying that the Victorians knew how to build with style.
A bit further along the riverbank we came upon the ruins of the castle which weren’t particularly impressive.
Though we could clamber around the ruins of the old tower house by the river.
From here we made our way back along the river to the town wall and walked along the Northern ramparts bacI to the coast.
A little beyond the wall we made our way down in the recently appeared sunshine to Fisherman’s Haven beach.
What a lovely find, much nicer soft sand than the main Spittal and Little Pier beaches.
Though there were a few people about, we soon found ourselves a quiet corner for Poppydog to have a run around.
And I managed to find enough stones to throw and keep her amused whilst I enjoyes the view and the sun.
Soon it was time for us to start to make our way back along the cliff path, with a spectacular view down onto the clear waters and beach – bearing in mind the tide is nearly fully in, I imagine at low tide it is absolutely stunning.
After a quick check for dolphins from the Pier (not a one to be seen) we made our way back over the river and around the bay to complete this 7.5 mile walk back to site.
Two thoughts of the day:
Isn’t it amazing how different the sea is from one day to the next – yesterday quite choppy and today flat calm.
Maybe the dolphins prefer a choppy sea?
