Fruit picking

13/7/2010

We had to cancel our night out the previous evening due to the late arrival of our new guests.  Instead, we  took the afternoon off today and went to Over Kellet near Lancaster to pick soft fruit for our home-made compote.  Raspberry, black and redcurrant and gooseberry bushes were all dripping with fruit.

From there we headed for Morecambe Bay – only a total of 20 miles from Croft Gate.  We always avoid the town but the promenade is clean and tidy with excellent views across the bay to the fells of the Lake District.  The sunsets are spectacular too.  Sometimes, in the winter we’ll make up a flask, take a pair of binoculars each, and park up along the shore to watch the many wading birds that live here. It’s an ornithologists paradise.

We ended the day with a treat of haddock and chips from the Bay Cafe – far superior to those supplied by ‘you know who’ in Padstow and half the price!
