Name of walk Boxing Day Walk in Arnside 2010
Date of walk 2010-12-27

As Boxing Day was a Sunday, the annual family and friends Christmas Walk was held on the Monday this year. The meeting place was Arnside Pier at 12.30pm. The destination undecided! The weather was misty, wet and cold and the ground was covered in ice after the rains overnight. These things did not deter us and we set off along the path running alongside the beach.

Tom keeps to the grass. Brendan and I had our microspikes on so we were fine.

Arnside viaduct in the distance. Fun was to be had by watching Ellie the dog skid all over the ice when fetching a stick.
