We did some last minute planning and decided to go to Formby, to get some more sand in our shoes as it's been a while.
Parking at the national trust car park, we visited the facilities and got expensive ice creams but failed to get a leaflet, which isn't like us at all.
We walked north along the beach for a mile or so, then returned back to a sheltered picnic spot in the trees. Back out on to the sand we headed south down to the Cabin Sands nature reserve, where we turned up the lane and returned via the path through the dunes, old asparagus fields and red squirrel walk.
