Monday morning we all squashed into Mark’s car again and drove to the north end of Morecambe Bay to visit Arnside Knott. Mum & Will couldn't face the steep losoe rocky path to the top so enjoyed strolling through the woods below whist the rest of us when up to the view point. We it was a lovely spot with views as far as Blackpool Tower to the south and Pit Hill Castle on the peninsula to the west. We then had a lovely stroll through the woods around the top of the Knott & saw Arnside Tower.
Once we'd met up back at the cars we drove to the Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, where had a tasty lunch and went round the hides on the reserve and up the tower. There were lots of ducks, a few lapwings & other waders as well as a few very friendly robins but sadly we didn't see the bearded tits or otters.
We went out to the Highwayman pub for dinner. We started with a delicious shared baked Camerbert with garlic and rosemary in which we dunked our breadsticks followed by tasty mains and deserts.
