With less than 2 weeks to go until this years Moonwalk Scotland I realise I haven't taken you on many walks this year.
So lace up your trainers, and lets go, first we'll go down to the river and then through the garlic scented woods,
admiring the castle as walk past, and then glimpse back at the clouds and tell them to Go Away.
Look there is a patch of blue sky, high up above the lion on the bridge.
Where now? The beach I think, let's take one of the estate walks,
the red route follows the old railway line
so if you want you can pretend to be a train. choo choo.
crossing over the viaduct. oh my we are high up,
don't look down if you get vertigo, we are higher than the tree tops.
Now we leave the flat even railway path, and climb out up out of the railway cutting,
before joining the sustrans cycle network briefly and dropping down the hill
and we can glimpse the picture perfect coloured houses of Alnmouth across the tidal estuary,
until finally we reach the sea.
fancy a paddle anyone?
(15 miles round trip in case you think you deserve an ice cream?)
