With my car being serviced in preparation for an MOT I had no excuse for not walking today. So I took the train out to Bangor and walked along the North Down Coastal Path, part of which I had been on with friends on New Year’s Day when we went to Holywood. This time I walked nine miles all the way back to the point where we began last Wednesday, beside the train station at Holywood. It was a very pleasant dander with great views across Belfast Lough towards Whitehead, Kilroot and Carrickfergus. I took over three hours to complete my journey. The only bit of rain came when I reached Seapark, close to Holywood so I went looking for a place on the High Street to get some lunch and ended up in Coast. The last two miles was the worst because I was walking into a strong wind.
