A very different day today, blue skies, sunshine and a little coastal breeze. Today we drove to Cocklawburn and parked up (this is the start of the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve) taking a moment to look down onto Cocklawburn Beach….
A very different look today but we didn’t loiter as we have planned a walk along the coastal path from here.
We followed the path which mostly traversed the grassland inland of the dunes, for several miles until we cut back through the dunes at Beachcomber House to this – looking to the right at Goswick Sands….
And to the left at Cheswick Sands….
Wow and we literally can’t see anyone
Needless to say Poppydog was free to run and run..
We walked the good half a mile to the sea and found an ideal log to take a moment or two to just enjoy and absorb the beauty of this place…
Poppydog happy chasing a ball or two which I had fortunately brought with me as there was not a stone in sight.
And make footsteps in the sand…
Soon enough it was time to make our way back, walking along the beach, at one point having to remove my boots and socks to wade across a stream crossing the beach and still not a soul in sight.
At the far end of Cheswick Beach with a last look back…
We clambered through the dunes to rejoin the coastal path for the last mile or so as the tide was too high for us to continue along the beach.
What a beautiful 9.5 mile walk and what a find.
