Allonby Cumbria CL

After a pleasant journey here with a couple of stops, including lunch we arrived at 1pm. The kiln Farm Site looks nice and clean and we were greeted by Vera the owner.  The caravans are in a straight line with paving slab parking spaces. The site is full with 2 Motorhome and 3 caravans.

Being only 100 yards from the sea we looked forward to a walk, but the heavens opened and heavy hail and rain fell.

Wednesday everywhere looks brighter, so be drove to Maryport, famed as the start of Hadrians Wall. First stop the very friendly Fabric shop!
Naturally some fabric had to come home with me!
We then walked around the town and spotted a guy painting a wall.
Must go back and see the finished design.

Lots of references to the sea 
Decked in poppies with a fine mosaic on the wall.

The harbour was our next stop and just love this statue
 
A Fishy Tale.

 
An interesting globe overlooking the harbour.

We ended our first full day here with an evening walk from the site, yes its only 100 yards, to the sea and had miles of beach to ourselves.
The tide was out and Allonby is in the distance.
