Silverdale Plod.

 This is just a short posting to say thanks to fellow blogger Martin for arranging his 3rd of 4 walks for the LDWA plodders.
The walk was from the car park at the RSPB reserve at Leighton Moss, Silverdale, Lancashire.
A circular walk of around 18.4km and 571m of up.

 The day was chilly and breezy at times but also with a few sunny periods. Unfortunately the distant views were not as good as they could have been, for example we couldn’t see the Hills of Cumbria.
But the tide was out and the beach section was a delight.

 Numerous “Wells” had to be located along the route, which proved a bit difficult at times but others were easy.

Conrad, a fellow blogger and long distance walker also came along as part of his replacement knee recuperation exercise.
It was good to meet you Conrad. Hope to see you again. It was good to put a face to the pages.

I am off to Spain this afternoon for a holiday with a bit of walking rather than a walking holiday, if that makes sense. Hence the short posting.

So here is a slideshow of the walk. Click Here.

(A real comment!)
Thanks, Alan. We hope you have a great trip to Spain. My report on this Plod is under construction and will comfortably exceed the 300 word 'attention span' limit that you have succeeded in meeting on this occasion!
