Way back at the start of the year, Eric came up with the idea of walking part of the Sefton Coastal Path at around midsummer. Who knew we’d be walking it as the result of the EU referendum changed the political landscape forever?
My foot simply doesn’t allow for long walks, but we managed nine miles of beach and coastal path with Anthony Gormley’s Another Place as our final destination.
This is the coast I was born on, but I don’t know it at all. The huge tankers coming in and out of Liverpool constantly and the dozens of wind turbines make the view an industrial one, but the massive sky and endless sweeps of beach are magnificent.
It was good to get away from radio and tv and the endless speculation about the consequences of an exit vote. Good to walk until I could walk no more – literally! And good to chat to my bro all the long day.
