March’s Walk – 2019

Our first walk of the year saw a good gathering of people and numerous four legged friends set off from Créances Plage. Dave chose a coastal walk to avoid muddy and waterlogged woodland tracks, with all the recent rain this proved to be a wise choice. Créances plage is a wild beach bordered by dunes and extends north to the mouth of the Lessay harbour.

The route took us south through the dunes towards Pirou Plage and although it was a slightly fresh and misty start, once it cleared and we were striding out, it soon warmed up into a very pleasant day. After reaching Pirou, we headed back to our lunch venue and start point at Créances along the expansive beach with lovely views across to Jersey. The tide was out on the return which exposed the numerous oyster and mussel beds. The walk was enjoyed by all and a very well deserved lunch at La Badine (just a short stroll from the beach) was excellent value for money with a varied selection available. All in all, a very enjoyable first walk.
