That was the plan anyway, but I hadn't given myself enough time to get there, I forgot about the horrendous traffic jams at peak times through Hull. So I was 20 mins late and they had gone. Never mind, I'm out for the day now, it will have to be plan B. My last visit to Spurn Point was on May 8th 2009, so I was due for another. Spurn is that bit of land that juts out into the sea, with the River Humber on the one side, and the North Sea on the other. A long thin peninsula, you can read the first post for all the details if you like. Just look for the date in the 'walk' label, on the side bar. Sorry I don't know how to do a link.
I stopped for half an hour at Withernsea, for a little bimble around. A root through the one charity shop and a big second hand shop, I bought some beads for £1. This is the lighthouse, I am not sure why it is in the middle of a row of houses, not much good for warning ships. It's a museum now.
This gateway looks very splendid, but it doesn't go anywhere, the beach and sea is just beyond the steps.
And here is the view of the beach, looking along the promenade. Not many people out, it's sunny but a bit chilly.
I parked at Kilnsea, and set off walking to Spurn Point. Last time I drove down to the end, but this time I am going to walk the four miles each way. Here are a few beach pictures.
Nobody about, I have got the place to myself. A spot of beach combing but nothing exciting to pick up......
Except maybe a three legged chair :o)
This is the main shipping chanel to Hull Docks, give them a wave. Eating my sandwiches as the boats pass by.
The sun is quite low now and I'm on my way back.
At one point this narrow strip of land widens out into a field for a short distance. I've never seen all black sheep with only one white sheep before.
