Name of walk North Walney Beach in Snow and a Walk to The Black Huts for the Sunset.
Date of walk 2010-01-06

It actually snowed on Walney Island on Tuesday afternoon so we took a walk down from our house to the beach. All the Barrow schools were shut. Tom and his mates went sledging. Then later we went to the Black Huts to watch the sunset.

A good day for being in the hills........ if you can get to them!

A bit nippy!

This afternoon was much brighter so we went for a walk to The Black Huts which are on the far side of the channel from the North End of the island. The road down was extremely icy, luckily I had my Microspikes in my coat pocket. A bullock walking to its feeding station with Black Combe behind.
