Near Sawrey

Not a bad start to the day, we have a group of 12 in and so far they have decent dry days and no wash outs.

This afternoon we went to Grange-over-Sands to pick up Denis & Margaret from the railway station on their return from Spain.

It is years since I had walked along the promenade at Grange, as kids we used to come up to Grange on the train to the (freezing cold) outdoor salt water swimming pool. as a youngster that walk back along the prom to the pool we had passed on the train seemed a massive distance, I thought it would seem much shorter now, but it still seemed a long way.

The sands in Grange-over-Sands have been replaced by spartina grass which the council is trying to eradicate, the sheep seem to be happy though.

Grange-over Grass seems wrong.

The rain arrives on the coast from nowhere.
