Monday 26th September: The Solway Firth

A visit to the coast for a change, we drove up to the shore of the Solway Firth, wild and remote

Then to the front at Silloth after buying sandwiches and these amazing buns at the local baker
Silloth has the strangest sea defences
And was once a thriving coastal resort, but the closure of the railway caused a terminal decline.
Despite this we always enjoy visiting the place as it seems as if time has stood still there!
After tea i went for my usual walk by the lake, it was calm and mild, so a panorama seemed in order.
And I finally produced the postcard to send home from this holiday!
