Date of walk 2013-03-17

Today Brendan and I took a walk around Baycliff. A repeat of one of Paul’s walks from the summer. The weather was not as good!

Walking beside the beach, we head for the beach huts.

The Beach Hut.

10

Morecambe Bay.

About 400m past the Beach Hut is some limestone pavement with an inscription carved by the late Bill Stables. The inscription contains names, poetry and song lyrics and dates from 1977.

It is a bit faded, but basically it also thanks Baycliff for its excellent summer holidays, after that it was a bit difficult to decipher.

There is a section in italics too!

Looking along Sunbrick Lane, less overgrown than in the summer!

Approaching the farm

18

What a cute sheep! The biggest spottiest sheep you ever did see! (Remember 'The Woodentops' on `Watch With Mother`?)

19

Now at Birkrigg Stone Circle with Bardsea behind. The sun is now out! I`m communing with the ancients......that's all those that actually remember `Watch With Mother`!

A closer view of Bardsea.

The mill pond behind The Olde Mill pub.

Great weather patterns!

A good little walk, under two hours long, roughly three miles.
