I'm leaving the Lake District today and heading for the coast. Start by crossing the River Derwent.
It's a bit rainy as I head out - I shelter in a couple of phone boxes on the way (I mean they aren't used for anything else nowadays).
On roads passing through the villages of Tallentire, Bullgill and Allerby.
As I head towards the sea, with the weather brightening up, I can see Scotland for the first time!
I reach the coast just south of Allonby. Although described by Dickens as a "dreary little place" I rather like Allonby. A wide strip of land running beside the sea and houses which look comfortably and confidently braced for the worst from the Irish Sea.
Then follow the fantastic coast - Scotland one side and the peaks of the Lake District to the other. Wonderful walking and I've fallen for the Solway Coast.
In the dunes I stumble across a giant concrete arrow and a couple of dots. Chatting to some locals I learn that they are there when the area was a World War Two bombing range - ordnance is still often fished out of the water.
Continuing along the coastal path through swathes of bright pink rosebay willowherb flowers.
I arrive on the outskirts of Silloth where I'm camping at a holiday park for the night (and enjoying the entertainment).
