We’ve been exploring South Cumbria this week. On Monday the boys and I took one of our favourite trips, to Grange over Sands.
We fed the ducks, a surprisingly energetic activity. Fortunately neither of the boys managed to throw themselves in. The boys cycled on the prom. We picnicked. We enjoyed the excellent playground on the promenade.
I even managed to read a little of Thoreau’s essay ‘Walking’ whilst the boys played. We didn’t get all that far along the prom, so it wasn’t a long walk for me – but I suppose that I could include it as a tiny part of my ongoing exploration of the river Kent.

When the tide came in it completely covered the salt marsh to the depth of a few inches. The boys wondered whether I had brought their swimming costumes.
