Pilgrim’s Causeway Sunset Walk is a twist on our traditional and popular Pilgrim’s Causeway walk. We were hoping to capture the sunset, as we returned back to Beal.
As usual, we met at The Barn at Beal. We arrived early, or late considering we were starting at 1pm for this one. A cup of tea and a scone were lunch. We met with the others, and did our warm up. Then we set off.
We headed down the path towards the Causeway. The tide was still only about a third of the way out but receding quickly. By the time we got to the place where we take our shoes off, the route was mostly dry.
The muddy bit
The water was a bit chilly at first but our feet quickly got used to it. Before long, we were at the muddy bit. You can walk round it but what would be the fun in that.
As we went further, we could see that the channel closer to the Island was still quite high. So, we got Mary to go round it, as she had her wellies on. Nobody wants a welly full of water.
When we reached the Island, we dried our feet and went off separately to do whatever everyone wanted to do. Oddly enough, we all found ourselves in Pilgrim’s Coffee House (our usual stop), on separate tables of course.
We met back at the Causeway at 4pm. It was a bit cloudy but the patterns of sunlight coming through the clouds were beautiful.
The tide was fully out when we were heading back to Beal. So, the sand was much drier. We avoided the muddy bit on the way back and sat at the refuge, to put on our shoes.
It was a bit cloudy and still a bit early for a proper sunset but the sky looked great as the sun went down.
We walked back up to The Barn at Beal. It was now 6pm on a Sunday and the cafe was closed. Everyone wanted to head back home, so we said our goodbyes and headed off.
Hope you enjoyed it. See you at the next one.
