Taking Tommy to Brean Down 12

A bit of an easy day today.  Taking Tommy, one of the grandsons over to Brean Down to show him the new cycle path that has been created between Weston and the National Trust Brian Down.  As the crow flies it is just over a mile from my place to Brean Down, 6 miles on the new track and 9 miles by road.  The River Axe is the problem splitting the two areas down the middle but the opening of the new path recently has changed all that.

Brean Down

Owned by the National Trust, Brean Down is the last bit of the Mendips where they meet the sea.  A good place to walk if you don't mind climbing up 300' of steps to get to the top.  Excellent views all round if you do.

Brean Sands

Stretching for 3/4 miles from, in the north Brean Down and in the south, Burnham on Sea this a popular place for tourists.  Tommy and I decided to ride back towards Brean itself along the beach.  The first photo is looking south from the beach towards Burnham.  The second, looking back towards north and Brean Down.  The sand was nice and firm and was not too bad to ride on.

We rode back to Weston back on the new cycle trail once we got off the beach.  We covered 12 miles today.
