today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Siddick to Maryport along the Solway coast


fishermen statue in Maryport as we walked to the bus stop for a Siddick bus


looking downstream from the bridge towards the sea


the walk started in Dunmail Shopping Centre ..


.. then out into the Nature Reserve of Siddick Pond


looking over Siddick Pond to a factory which shows how windy it was


looking back over the pond to some of the Lake District fells


gorse blooming beside the path


zooming over the Solway to Robin Rigg offshore windfarm and the Scottish coast


we walked past these onshore turbines


coffee stop on the shore below the turbines


zooming in over the Solway to Criffel


looking back along the coast to the turbines


a comfortable tea stop sheltered from the bitter northeast wind


Maryport harbour


finishing an unusual walk for Keswick rambling club beside Maryport harbour
