Sunday funday repeat

Up with the lark (If the lark gets up at 9.30) and a beautiful misty morning turning into glorious winter sunshine. Guess where I went … yes inevitably the beach.

Tide was waaaaay out

The tide was so far out ‘Wick reef’ was exposed – Ive never heard it called this until a fisherman i was talking to named it. Might as well have a name I guess. It’s basically a large area of rock covered in coral like stuff.

Wish I could remember its name. I did discover it once

It’s super crunchy if you accidentally stand on it, I try my utmost to never do this as I reckon theres a whole civilisation of small coral building creatures hanging out in there.

By now the sun was poking through

I carried on and over Witches Point down onto Southerndown beach and as far as I could go toward Ogmore until I got stopped by the tide, I don’t go here as often so it was fun to explore

End of the road …. err beach

So I turned and ran back taking in the views

Always love this view from the cliffs at Witches

Found some more ammonite remnants for the fossil crew

And went right back to Nash Point and up onto the cliffs to get some hills in.

I actually did 13 miles again (No matetr where I go this sems to happen randomly) and the legs were feeling it on the way back up the cliffs. I think mainly as most of the run had been over technical beach rocks and I’d been forcing the legs to do many leaps and steps.

Another great morning though!
