Wordless Wednesday…… Favourite Places


Over the Bridge

Location :- Ashness Bridge, Cumbria (Derwent Water and Skiddaw beyond)

I wish I was striding over this packhorse bridge today, anticipating a grand day on the Lakeland Fells

But even here take care…

Wordless Wednesday…a new month ( and a new Season ? )


Location:-  Cockerham Sands, Morecambe Bay, Lancashire

The first day of a new month.  September, the month that the Meteorological Office define, for us in the northern hemisphere, as the start of autumn.  Not sure I agree with them, their desire to break a year down into 4 equal segments ignores natures own cycle.

That said, I do find that the light from now on changes, softer, surprisingly warmer, particularly in the evenings and if you get the opportunity to be by the west coast… then a sunset glow could be your reward.

One location never seems to disappoint, is Cockerham Sands.  At the mouth of the River Lune, marked by the squat Lune Light, which marks where the Lune enters the expanse of Morecambe Bay.  You also get a double bonus, for as the tide rushes in, and it does come in fast, in rush waders and wildfowl that have been feeding on the mud flats. 

Rather a lot of words for Wordless Wednesday, but I thought it worth it.  Well it is one of my Favourite Places

The year may be moving along at a pace but we still need to….
