|Comments:||A pleasant walk to Arnside via The Pepperpot, Arnside Tower and Arnside Knott. As the tide was in, our return route along the coastal path was inaccessible in places but we were able to continue through the woods. The speed of the outgoing tide increased as we walked and a couple of kayakers hardly needed to paddle to travel at a swift pace - hopefully they won't need to return against the tide!|
