Yesterday was a day out at the beach but not as you might expect. The beach in question wasn’t really a beach but the tidal flats of Morecambe Bay. As not everyone reading this will be familiar with the area, here is a link to Wikipedia
The Bay has seen more than its fair share of accidents and deaths. The flats are littered with very deep quicksand and if the tide turns on you, you won’t outrun it even if you can avoid the quicksand. So why would I go to such a place? To walk across the bay with around 300 other fools.
There are and have been for many years regular guided walks across the bay which is around 9.5 miles. It’s not something that was high on my agenda (I like mountains not the flat) but as my wife wanted to do the crossing I tagged along with the Sony RX100 in my pocket. Actually it was around my neck as there was quite a lot of wading through water that was waist deep.
Whilst I didn’t get a wide variety of shots the weather was great and the bay was strangely beautiful once you got away from the shore.
