Yorkshire Dales National Park

When traveling between Southport and Stockton-on-Tees I generally take a shortcut through Sedbergh towards Kirkby Stephen. This route goes through the Yorkshire Dales National Park – it’s a very pleasant drive. As I always go on business, I don’t have time to stop and enjoy the view, but this time I took my camera and started early(ish). Although I didn’t have time to veer from the beaten path, I did stop a few times and take a few snaps. To me this is typical British scenery. When the sun is shining there isn’t a better place to be than Britain.

A Haven in Birkdale Dunes

Park up at the car park by Royal Birkdale Golf Club, go through the gate and down the path. Fight your way through the overgrown bushes, Royal Birkdale on one side and Hillside Golf Club on the other. As you walk you notice that the dogs being walked back to the car park are rather wet. Eventually you come to a clearing in the bushes with a pond. This is where the dogs get wet, this is where their owners stop to contemplate life for a few moments before turning back to the realities of the day. This is one small haven in Birkdale Sand Dunes.
