Out before 7am, unusually early for me at weekends. Overcast but dry & fairly fresh. 10.2 miles round the lakes, coastal park, up the beach to the redundant coastguard station before switching back on the shore to find the shiftingly soft sandy trails on the way home.
Risked the rumbling thunder and distant lightning at 7am to enjoy a much more refreshing & manageable 4-mile run to the lakes, beach & prom near Waterloo. Detained by ball throwing for an almost GSD - he has a much shorter coat - and a brown & white sheepdog with blue eyes.
