It was the perfect summer’s day for a walk to Uphill - there are SO many lovely walks in the area that it is difficult to stay away.
On this occasion I walked along the beach from Royal Sands and never fail to find another perspective for photographing the posts in the sands.
Before leaving home the news was reporting that more people had been trapped in the sinking mud and had to be rescued – why do they not read the signs? The view of Brean Down is sorely tempting but as yet no cycle or walkers path across the River Axe. If only the ferry were still operating.
The day trippers had not yet arrived at this part of the beach and all was calm and peaceful as I headed on around the salt marshes. A few small boats were berthed in the estuary and their bells tinkled softly in the breeze - it could have been a million miles from civilisation.
Across the tributary lay the boat yard and the Wharf Side Tea Rooms - a very good place to stop for a pot of tea (and comfort stop). The staff were friendly and service excellent.
A previous post mentioned the fact that Weston Town Council has refurbished the public conveniences in Uphill. It had been my intention of ‘paying a visit’ to these but I was met by a notice telling me they were “broken” and would be opened as soon as possible.
“So sorry for the inconvenience”!!
