Today the weather is truly amazing. It's t-shirt weather so long as you're on the move, so I went for a nice long (for me) walk to the Dr's monument. GPS, dog, drink, sunglasses, towel, camera and off we went! 4.78miles later we were home again.
Madam is now conked on her bed and hasn't even noticed it's gone doggy dinner time.
Photos! To get there I decided to take the scenic route along Crossapol beach. Trotted down, took off shoes and socks, and got walking. We met a couple of folks walking a dog and my bare-footedness was commented on as "a person going bare foot; it must be summer!" The beach was certainly warmer than my last visit in February.
A literal sand bag:
Look at that beach!
I saw these tracks in a few places. I can only assume a *very* small dog as they only occurred near shoe and larger dog prints.
At the far end (from us) of Crossapol beach there is this odd outcropping of concrete:
(EDIT: There used to be a pipe that took the water from the reef to the sea under the arches. Half right that commenter :) )
Turns out it's where the stream that runs by the surgery comes out to the sea:
Also at that end there's this patch of land:
It seems to accumulate the wash-ups of the sea. Good place to find net, rope and plastic.
There's also this little buoy/float garden that I rather like:
What an ideal place to put such a structure; so many gorgeous views.
The Dr's and Dentist's:
Baugh Bay (I'm pretty certain)
View across to Scarinish:
EDIT. Apologies, on further inspection this is the Baptist chapel and
Mans a’ Bhàigh or Clachan Guest House behind it.
So that was the walk there and what a glorious one it was too. Either tonight or tomorrow I shall post the walk back across the Reef with the little finds I spotted on there.
