For today’s walk I had the choice of a 25 mile drive to climb Wetherlam (2,476ft) or a more local 9 mile walk with 1,200ft of ascent starting from Silverdale. The latter won out and given the heat & sunshine, I think that it was a good idea. The walk passed the starting point for yesterday’s Bay walk and circled the Leighton Moss RSPB reserve visited last week. Whilst the walk only reached the dizzy height of 400ft above sea level, which was visited at Jenny Brown’s Point, it was quite undulating and as a final walk for the holiday, was as much as I wanted to do in the prevailing hot weather. Sadly, it doesn’t look as if the sun will shine much for the remainder of the week and I’ve therefore decided to cut the holiday short by 3 days and to come home early.
