We spent the run up to New Year and the first few days of 2013 in Maryport in Cumbria. Maryport is a quiet little fishing port and is a little off the tourist trail, but that’s exactly why I love it! You can access the Lake District very easily from Maryport and it’s easy to get to from Newcastle. Tom’s family has links there and so we go quite often.
We went for a walk around the harbour on one of the few dry days that we had during our stay, and the weather was clear enough to see Scotland at the other side of the Solway!
I think this is my favourite photo from the walk – I love the artistic way in which these nets have been laid out. I’m not sure if it was intentional but it looks great!
