R kindly dropped me off at the bottom of Jess Road to walk part of the new cycle
and walking track. It was an easy walk, I was passed by lots of bikes but saw no other walkers.
This is the new bridge that makes it possible. It is parallel to the rail bridge ( on the right if you look closely )
Looking back to the 2 bridges.
At the top of the track you can see red on a wagon on a train. It was very loud and close above me just that bit of hedge in between. ( wish I had still been on the bridge )
It was a very cloudy day so lots of moody scenes like this.
The new part of the track ( to me ) only took me 20 minutes so I turned left onto a road near where we used to live and walked down to the beach. That took longer so all up about an hour. At the beach at the end I was pleased to see it is now a designated stop for campervans to stay over night. Small boats get launched there too Someone has painted the toilet there brightly and quilt well.
If you enlarge this pic you can see the cliff face of the Quarry Park that our orchard was next to ( a way in the distance )
Looking the other way into the sun this was the scene.
All photos should enlarge if you click on them.
