Sunday out - Brean Down
After many cold and grey days at last we had dry and quite warm Sunday - good time for a day out at last; somewhere we haven't visited before?
Brean Down is a long peninsula jutting out into the Bristol Channel, between Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super-Mare.
After climbing steps to the top (how many? I don't want to count!) my knees feel the hibernation of the last couple of months. There is an option of a road, which we took on the way back.
The sun could not decide if to stay out or not, so some of the picture are much darker.
This is a view from the top of the Down to the beach below.
A view north - outlines of Weston-super-Mare in the mist. You can see which way the wind normally blows here.
But it was very calm today.
East - across the Levels.
Walking west - you come to the Brean Down Fort at the end of the peninsula.
Time to explore the fort and its history.
