Brean Down

First of March,like opening the door to an un-expected visit from an old friend. This friend laden with blue skies and heavy hints of spring “Hello, welcome and please come in!” For the morning at least, by the afternoon the rain beat on the window, but we were home then, having earned a lazy afternoon with a mornings walk. One of those perfectly balanced Sundays finished with a big family dinner. March, I really like you already.

Yesterday morning, we walked the Brean Down headland. Up over the top with views across to Weston-Super-Mare and out sea; Steep Holm and Flat Holm Islands. Dropping down to a deserted fort, perfect small boy imagination fodder. Back along a sheltered a gravel path, tucked out of the wind.

Brean Down was an unexpected discovery, on the map it looked interesting and that was all the researched we’d managed. It turned out to be a bracing walk with views to infinity, perfect for blowing away winter and hailing the arrival of spring.

We will definitely return to explore the sweeping beach, Brean Sands, and try the lovely National Trust cafe, I took a peek inside and was immediately smitten by the smell of chips and the cakes! The cakes looked good.

Hello Spring!




Look at that sky.

    What beautiful pictures – looks like such a lovely place to go. Now that the weather’s improved (keeps fingers crossed it continues) I’m looking forward to blue skies and wonderful views too. They just lift your spirits.
