So the beginning of the end.....I was up and away at 5.15am! Madness? Well no, I wnted to beat the forecast rain. I'd spent so long walking in the dry it seemed a shame to get wet so close to the end! It seemed hard to pick a route which had much offroad betweeen these to points. However the minor roads I used were very quiet, a bonus of the early start.
|Across the Norh Esk again, which gave access to the minor roads to Marymill.|
|The minor roads here reminded me of rural France.....don't know why?|
|The "track" up to Morphie was rather imposing, it was blowing a fair bit over the top of the Hill of Morphie. I had to put my Buff Mitts on!!|
|Having crossed the busy A92 it was downhill all the way to the dunes at Nether Warburton and the North Sea.|
|So here it is the North Sea, I arrived at 8am. Not surpisingly I had the beach to myself!|
|Except for the wind!|
Despite my best efforts to write in the sand, the wind was blowing sand into my beautiful artwork as fast as I was writing it!
