We spend a lot of time over here looking over there – at Walton. We haven’t been for a couple of years so took a picnic over yesterday.
I used to cycle over there with my friends when I was very much younger. We’d chain our bikes up outside the pier then go and have a day of fun before setting off for home.
Yesterday we walked round the nature reserve and observed some nature.

The tide was in, but we’d never planned it to be a fossil hunting day.
I’m sure they are hollyhocks growing on the cliffs!

So this is how over here looks from over there.
I’m sure I’ve posted before about how strange it is to see something familiar from a different perspective - a bit like catching sight of your reflection in a shop window without the terrible fright!
