Sea Harr



Often in spring we get Sea Harr on the east coast when days become warmer. Cold  North Sea air blown onshore meets the warmer air on the coastline and we get a mist that comes and goes. Sometimes its pea soup (thick!) sometimes the sun burns through, it is often eerie , or quite magical down on the coast when it rolls in.
An unusually warm last week of March saw such a weekend, Saturday was thick Harr when we went to John Muir Park, Five folk, four fat bikes and a horse -:)

Black & white seems to work better in this light...






The recent dry spell has lowered the depth of the river Tyne and exposed was a small island that i attempted to ride out to on the Moonlander...


But no such luck as i rode into ankle deep quicksand!, jumping of the Moonie it sat up unassisted on its fat tyres -:), amazing it was managing to ride along the river bank...


Friend Tom was riding my Pugsley on his first proper beach ride and enjoyed him self...



Along to Dunbar after to the chip shop and we met friend Allan and kids on a very long tandem!. Now the good bit, Jason is very handy with a camera, and when he makes a film it is always very good. Well he had his Go Pro along with him on Saturday and this film he made has to be one of the best beach riding fat bike films i have watched, kinda sums up a day on the coast with friends...

  3. rlove2bike; As you will have read on here John Muir was born here in East Lothian in Dunbar. We all owe a lot to him today for his conversation work...
