The canal and coast walk is a variation on an earlier walk from a few years ago, whilst the walk around Tebay was mainly to add to my collection of photographs following the course of the river.
We had a gorgeous day for our continued exploration of the beautiful Arnside and Silverdale ANOB - it wasn't quite as sunny when we walked along the Lune from Kurkby Lonsdale to Whittington (but it dad stay dry!).
There's plenty of variety in this 8 mile walk which takes in coastal cliffs, and the summit of Warton Crag. Although much of the route follows clear paths, tracks or roads, there are some steep sections involving scrambles up rocky outcrops.

Where does time go? It was when reading a friend's blog that I realised I hadn't updated my blog since March! Since when I've sold photographs at 4 craft fairs (at the fantastic Vintage Festival in Morecambe and at 3 events organised by the Bay Craft Collective at Heysham Heritage Centre).
There have also been 3 more Kindle book, walk descriptions - and an additional one only available from the website.
I've also had picture displayed at Morecambe Artist Colony's Members Exhibition and taken part in a group exhibition at Carnforth Station Heritage Centre (with Johnny Bean and R Simon Dalton).
A 5¼ mile walk, mostly along well-defined paths and tracks - though some may be muddy after rain - as can be seen from the images: it was very muddy on the day we photographed the route. The final section follows a tarmac road alongside the lake. There are some great views over Windermere (especially if you walk on a better day than we did) and the return route is along the lake shore.

Most of the 6⅔ mile route follows a spectacular section of the England Coast Path (and also the start of the unofficial Coast to Coast Path) – and most of it follows a clear clifftop path along the Heritage Coastline that is the most westerly in northern England. The inland loop crosses a large field where there is no path visible on the ground, then follows clear paths and tracks before returning to the coast.
