Day out at Crosby beach

Yesterday Myself, my partner and Rolo went to Crosby beach. We walked there from our house which took about an hour . We walked all the way across the beach, stopped off for a nice hot chocolate with marshmallows & cream and some chips too.

At Crosby beach there are a lot of Iron men. They are sculptures by Antony Gormley called ‘Another Place’.Another Place consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the foreshore, stretching almost one kilometre out to sea.

The Another Place figures – each one weighing 650 kilos – are made from casts of the artist’s own body standing on the beach, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation.Having previously been seen in Cuxhaven in Germany, Stavanger in Norway and De Panne in Belgium, ‘Another Place’ is now a permanent feature in the UK, at Crosby Beach.

We also walked home from the beach, we did a total of 9 miles walking that day. How I managed it I don’t know. Little Rolo is a trooper. He loves walking and he did great to walk that far. We did carry him a few times though 😀

We saw one iron man with a t-shirt on that said ‘Be a match, save a life’. This is from the Anthony Nolan foundation. Please register, you could save someone’s life …  https://www.anthonynolan.org/
