Our Bank Holiday Weekend Meander...

Today's Meander took us 4.89 miles for lunch at Bar Mio and a couple of beers.



You can view the route we took at http://gb.mapometer.com/walking/route_4392836 
Starting from Freshfield Station car park (yes I drove there) we headed north, parallel to the railway line. 
Chris spotted Harebells next to the path...

The Heather was stunning...



...and the honeysuckle berries...

...very bright.
Crossing the railway line, we headed down Fisherman's Path towards the dunes and Liverpool Bay...

In addition to the plants already spotted we saw Evening Primroses...

Past the Lizard Artwork Bench...

...it was time to go up and over the dunes...

Our walk along the beach, in the sunshine, was as enjoyable as always.
I don't think we have ever seen so many Sea Urchins (sea hedgehogs), on this stretch of beach, before...

...Still complete with their spines.
With the Irish Sea to our left...

...(yes the tide was out) and dunes to the right...

...we headed for Ainsdale.
Two lost children's toys...


...and the usual jellyfish...


...were spotted on the tide line.
At Ainsdale we headed in-land to Bar Mio for Lunch/all-day Breakfast...

...and a couple of beers...

The station is in view...

...so we could plan our return time to the car and home.
We both agree that we are very lucky to live so near to such enjoyable walks!
