A couple of weeks ago I went back to Cumbria to do a bit of family visiting and get a million hugs. It was the perfect opportunity to relax and just focus on eating, walking and sleeping (and playing with a kitten!).
I stayed with my Mum and her partner in Skinburness, which is right on the coast near Silloth. You know the Morrissey song ‘Every Day is Like Sunday’? Pretty much that.
However, it’s a pretty soothing place to visit, particularly when one is being fed steak and told not to help too much with the washing up. It was super dark and quiet during the night, which made a pleasant change from our house in Sheffield.
Although the weather was very changeable and both myself and my Mother feeling fairly weedy, we succeeded in going for a walk around Grune Point, a grassy gorse-y pointy type landmass with some marshy bits (insert more appropriate description here).
So these are the photos I took that evening, in an attempt to capture the sort of barren yet somehow edifying environment up there. I will let you be the judge of my success.
Stay tuned next time for tales of the Silloth Charity Shop haul… its going to be a treat.
