Taken on the 26th of June with iPhone X. The day was initially cloudy, but wind and rain free and it gradually got sunnier and warmer. Apparently, the dunes here are the largest in England.
A nice chap sells good hot and cold drinks as well as bacon rolls and cakes from his van right at the entrance to the National Trust site: http://squirrelcoffee.weebly.com Nothing nicer than a good cup of coffee on the way to the beach through the pine forest! There are also toilets, open until 4 pm. Both car parks are more or less full before 11 am on Saturday, but it only takes 15 min to walk there from the Freshfield station which lies on the Northern Line that links Liverpool and Southport.
I am told this is just like the beaches of the Baltic Sea.
