Walk across the Bay

Today’s walk was most unusual in that it was only 4 miles as the crow flies with zero ascent. However, it turned out to be just a little over 5 miles with some very minor ups and downs. It was, of course, a walk across Morecambe Bay from Gibraltar Farm, near Silverdale to Humphrey Head, south of Grange over Sands. This was a led walk by www.morecambecrossbaywalk.co.uk and was undertaken by at least 150 walkers. Apparently, there can be up to 400 on these walks. The route was something of a zig-zag to avoid the quick sand and involved knee-deep crossing of some fast flowing tidal channels. Any deeper and it would have certainly swept you off your feet. The weather was perfect on a fairly still & sunny day and was perhaps a little too warm as testified by my sunburnt legs. It was a once in a lifetime experience and something that everyone should try.
