A still, cold (about 7 degrees C) sunny day; just perfect conditions for this bracing walk.
Started out at West Beach in Nairn with a high tide and inadvertently timed it spot on for a long beach return.

Starting out in Nairn (the cleanest seaside town in the UK I'm sure), the dog is super-keen to get going.

Heading back to Nairn. Top walk.

The only low point was Alice's bad head; other than that, a great walk.

Walked by Sarah, David, poorly Alice and bouncy Nudge
