It was a blustery day but the wind wasn’t cold and the hurrying clouds were small and fluffy.


Out of the wind the sun was warm but there weren’t many customers for the ice cream van.


Cocklawburn beach is a half hour walk from Spittal so it’s been in range for lockdown walks, but with Spittal beach so close to home we’d not been here since early April.  Then the beach was deserted.  Now the rules are easing and the council has reopened car parks, but there are no crowds rushing to the coast round here.
