Forrest, waterwheel, chapel and sea. . . . . . The End

Inland today, to Kirroughtree Forrest Park.

We didn't bring bikes, although hiring an electric bike did appeal to me!!!

Without the sea breeze it felt sooo much hotter.

Not hot enough for me to be tempted into the lake!!

After a looong walk, it was back to the visitors centre . . .

for some lunch (and free wifi)

Back onto the coastal road, down the coast to the town of Gate House of Fleet.

Hidden away, off the main street to the Mill on the Fleet

A lovely mix of .. . . 

a bit of history

a crammed book shop

a art gallery

a tourist infomation office

and a cafe.

Back to base camp . . . .

Ooh I do love the sea

Everything about it.

But the sea with blue sky is something you can't beat.

Well maybe sea, blue sky and a nice cup of coffee!!!

On our last afternoon we visited the little chapel on the hill, you can just see it hidden in the trees!

Up the winding path from the beach. . . . 

Soo peaceful, what a resting place. . . . .

Forever looking out over the sea.

Back across the beach, filling my pockets with shells as we go. . . . 

Yes its time to go in the sea . . . . . 

You have to go in, even if its just over your ankle.

Ooh how I was still by the sea . . . .
