Middleton Sands and Sunderland Point

Pouring down in the South Lakes this morning, so it was off to the seaside! I've done more than my fair share of seeing nowt! We parked on the shore at Middleton Sands, the wind was howling and rocking the car. But the sun was off we went.

Today was a "Big Sky Day", something of a novelty for a hill country dweller!

This is Sambo's Grave more details here for those who would like to know more about this poignant spot

We then cut through from the West coast to Sunderland Point along "The Lane"

Looking North from "First Terrace" towards Overton across the tidal road

The tide was out and the boats high and dry.

This is the site of the "Cotton Tree", actually a Poplar!

Old tidal defences and newer rock armour

Although I'd missed it on the outward walk, I noticed this second world war bunker on the way back.
We were soon back at the car it had been a bracing walk, and full of interest.
