new year’s day beach walk

It was a beautiful sunny morning yesterday and Moira+I were determined to blow the cobwebs away to celebrate New Year’s Day. We toyed with the idea of trawling around the wonderful Arnos Vale cemetery – but it didn’t seem quite suitable for the occasion(!). So, we ended up driving to Berrow and repeating a NYD’s walk we did six years ago… and on a similar cold, but beautifully sunny, day.
Our usual approach to the beach is via the footpath that crosses the Burnham+Berrow Channel golf course, but we had to turn back due to flooding (our walking boots were no match for one of the shin-deep water sections)!  
Anyway, we duly parked a little further down the road and enjoyed a beautiful “fresh” walk to welcome in the new year.
Photo: although there were a reasonable number of people about, most of them stayed on the “sand track” that ran alongside the dunes – which left plenty of beach for Moira+me to explore!
