The south shore promenade is just a 3 minute walk to the bottom of the street but we took a short detour first, around the corner to take a little look at the Church House. Nearly there.
Walking along the promenade towards the harbour we noticed the lifeboat crew dragging the boat up the beach. I liked the light shining on the scene.
We crossed the harbour swing bridge then walked halfway along the north shore promenade, ducking into one of the shelters to avoid a short, sharp shower.
A couple of the shelters have been painted by local artists, using a grant from the IOM Arts Council. I preferred this one.
We crossed over the road at this point to walk back through the park, getting caught in another shower along the way. Luckily the witches were wearing their waterproofs...
An hour and a half. I needed a good, strong coffee at the end.
A walk you can never tire of.ReplyDelete
I always enjoy this one.Delete
I love walking by water - sea, lake or river - it's always so calmingReplyDelete
I love to gaze out over the water. As you say, it is somehow soothing, whatever the weather.Delete
What a nice hike! You have settled in a wonderful spot!ReplyDelete
How changeable the weather is - such blue skies with a quick burst of showers! You must prepare for it when you set out or you wouldn't enjoy it so!
Yep. Rain jacket, waterproof trousers and boots. It is the Isle of Man!Delete
Dry and bright and then a short sharp shower. You always have to have your brolly in a pocket . That's a lovely walk. Nice to have been able to walk and enjoy it . An hour and a half walk is quite a way.ReplyDelete
I do love murals, and your witches in their waterproofs. They both my st brighten the day and give a smile
It is often too windy for a brolly so a hooded rainjacket is best. Heavy rain and gale force winds forecast for tomorrow!Delete
But you took us on an interesting tour round - thanks for that.ReplyDelete
My pleasure xDelete
Love the witches in their bin liner cloaks. Very Helloweeny. Is that a new word? It's gale time here too.ReplyDelete
Strap down those wheelie bins and trampolines!Delete
Weather still quite nice here; I'm still wearing shorts. I love that harbour with all the small fishing boats; such atmosphere!ReplyDelete
It's a proper working harbour, not just pleasure boats.Delete
We now have a storm battering us this morning and set to last into tomorrow. Rather moist and draughty out there.
Although new to this part of the UK (2yrs), I think that we here on the Fylde get your leftovers!ReplyDelete
The Dog just about gets dry before our next walk.
We get northsider Dave's leftovers before passing them on to you. Plenty more on it's way now!Delete
My favourite picture is the second one - of the harbourside. Lovely light. It's like you and Lord P are in limbo before you begin your new life properly in your new home.ReplyDelete
Thanks YP. It was P's suggestion to take that photo. I thought it would be too dull but the light turned out to be quite interesting.Delete
I think that our period in limbo is coming to an end.
Watch this space.
Ah! Got it! A little bit of research and I now know where you are moving to JayCee. It looks lovely and with five good-sized bedrooms you will be able to start up a B&B business. More toast please love!Delete
You've been peeking!Delete
Well, you should have closed the curtains!Delete
That looks like a lovely walk! The witches were fab - were they people or an installation? I bet you emjoyed your coffee...ReplyDelete
The witches were definitely an installation. I was surprised they had survived the weather conditions.Delete
