Visit Solway Firth
Today, my wife and mys.elf enjoyed a fascinating time on the northern side of the Solway Firsth in southern Scotland. In fact, the Firth acts as part of the boundary betwen England and Scotland.
Typical beach scene
Despite being at a latitude of 55 degrees north we benfited from unusual coincidence of unusually hot weather, shallow seas and a long tidal reach. All of this contributed to excellent swimming and other water activities including me undertaking first ever paddle boarding experience.
As predicted, the weather turned very wet late afternoon but prior to that we managed to explore the immediate locality on foot as illustrated in the images below.

Picked these wild blackberries to sprinkle on our cornflakes tomorrow morning.
We have some intresting sites lined up for tomorrow.
