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
