Follow that acorn!

Yesterday we touched down after a 23 day trip to England. The centerpiece of our trip was to walk the Hadrian’s Wall National Trail from Bowness-on-Solway to Wallsend, on the outskirts of Newcastle. We finished that walk a week ago today (officially it is 84 miles, but I can’t really brag-we did it over 12 days and had our luggage transported).

The National Trail is marked, well marked, by an acorn symbol.

Here are some pictures for Cee’s Which Way from the first day, walking along Solway Firth.

(I have so many pictures of my husband’s back that I have it as a key word in Lightroom!).

The road along Solway Firth is prone to seasonal flooding. In several spots they have signs to let motorists know how deep the water will be so they know if it is safe to proceed.

Our first acorn (or at least the first one I noticed).

Ducks go that way. (Actually it means that there is a wildlife refuge, but they use the same format on signs to show pedestrians and cyclists which way to go).
