Flatlands

A weekend trip to catch up with Steve's family led to a wee exploration of the flatlands of the East Riding of Yorkshire. It's been getting a wee bit of media attention with the South Riding  fictional drama that has just finished on  BBC. 

Spurn Point was the destination but the 5km walk from the car park to Spurn Head was not on the cards with the still grumbling knee and the lateness of the hour for when we eventually got there. So we just soaked up the scenery and the sunset. The tide was in so we weren't treated to the views of the ever changing clays and sands but there were loads of birds flying over keeping us guessing as to what they were. Yes we had forgotten the bins too - doh! Kilnsea is the last village before Spurn and there we were surprised to find an old defence bunker which was disappearing into the estuary. With the sun going down it was time to head north back to Hornsea. Next visit we'll be better prepared to explore properly.
