Soaking on the Solway

From Allonby Bay you can see Scotland, well we could just, through the rain, mist and cloud.  Hardly a day for the beach, but why not if you can and really good to feel the fresh air.  The whole stretch of beach to ourselves..funny that!You can just make out the Robin Rigg offshore wind farm, the largest in the UK with 60 turbines.  The scenery here will be something else on a clear day…..must go back.

In case you can't make it out: Wind turbines on the left, Scotland on the right.

Criffell (1,866ft/569m) in Scotland, lurking under the cloud

Very murky sea, just before a wave goes rightover Julian's wellies.

Just to prove I was there - yes am soaking wet!
