A small turnout for the coach today but both walks enjoyed good weather,
definitely an improvement on the recent run of Sundays
The highlight for both walks was the fine cliff top scenery of St Bees head with the Isle of Man standing out clearly. Seals were also spotted but sadly there was little evidence of nesting seabirds that used to crowd the eroding sandstone ledges along the cliffs.
There was also the drama of a Coastguard and RNlI call out to a casualty in Fleswick bay and we watched from a distance the air sea rescue helicopter lift the unfortunate person from the beach.
Both walk’s returned to St Bees for refreshments to round off a fine day.
