It doesn`t snow very often where I live in the UK........

BUT , being on a Peninsula means beach on three sides ! :D

That`s why I love my Pug.

Recent beach ride on the Duddon Estuary , Enjoy!

Cheers,
Dr FG :thumbsup:

Hi CK,
I was hoping you would contribute, Thanks !

Glad you like the pix Minitrail.

Alaska Beach Riding

Posted somewhere else on the forum - but here again: Cook Inlet beach riding/camping with the fat bike - 28 foot tides require some planning - or a miserable few hours clining to a muddy, collapsing bluff.

I stayed on Holy Island a few years ago when we were travelling from Newcastle to Edinburgh.
A really magical place, best appreciated when the tide is in and the causeway is closed.
It is so peaceful then :)
It would also be good to see the great castles of Bambrugh from the beach.
If you do this ride lots of pix please !

Barrnem, sorry the pix take so long to load, hopefully worth the wait though.

Anyone spot the Faux endomorph trax in the upright `Pug on the beach` shot ?
I would love to say it was intentional, but it was just luck.

Cheers,
Dr FG

Abolutely breathtaking pictures, Dr Feelygood! I'm spellbound by the sunsets, the far-off hills and the slight melancholy of it all...

Thanks Orkge.

I took loads of pix that evening. Had to try and `capture` the moment as best I could.
It was a very beautiful memorable ride. :)
