It was a beautiful sunny morning. Really I ought to have been finishing the painting in my living room. Instead I hopped on a bus to Whitley Bay and walked back along the coast to Blythe. The sunshine had brought out the dog walkers in their droves. it seemed as if I was about the only person dogless. Even joggers had dogs in tow. Mind, I had several dogs keen on joining me as I walked along the tide line. The majority of the dog walking fraternity seemed a friendly bunch though, most giving a smile and a friendly 'good morning'.
Quite a surf was running, but the morning was pleasant.
St Mary's Island.
One slightly annoying factor was on some of the paths quite a few cyclists,several riding at speed, seemed unable to comprehend that pedestrians where also using the same bit of ground. One girl, approaching from behind, almost side swiped me and there where a few other near misses too. Some of the dog walkers had the same problem.
Overall it was a good walk and put a few needed miles in to the legs. Roughly it worked out on average around eight miles.
