As a follow-up to an earlier post here are a few photo’s from our day at the seaside.
Parking is great, there are miles of beach to park on. This beach is a great walking beach but not really one for a beach type of holiday as the tide when it goes out it REALLY goes out, about 2 miles, so you can’t really go swimming. It can get very windy as well, so not for a lazy day sunning yourself, but for walking along the vast open sands, especially with dogs, it is perfect.
Shadow was a bit overwhelmed by the vast openness, having previously only really walked in countryside and forest. He tried, but failed many times to catch a gull.
I loved running around with shadow on the beach barefoot, wonderful.
We did notice this little hovercraft whizzing around on the water.
After a lovely walk all over the beach we retreated to our car for refreshments. Trying to get shadow to drink some water from his bowl was a nightmare, but he managed to get some water before most of it went on the sand…
We then decided to have a walk over to the Down
You pass a house near these steps and this is greeting you as you pass….
It was a bank holiday weekend here, so it was quite busy compared to when we came a couple of years ago.
About halfway up the steps Shadow was not so keen to continue
There is plenty of Flora up there, there was a botany group exploring. W had a lovely walk along to top and enjoying the views.
The Bluebells were late this year, but beautiful
Wendy and I enjoy this part of the world and we will have to visit again soon.
