28th jan10, Newton Links, 8am

I noticed two temporary circles on my route. The first, a flooded part of the "grey dunes" and the second resulting from an attempt to make some horses very dizzy.

According to my book, "grey dunes" are the stable, grass covered dunes slightly inland and are so named to demarcate them from the "yellow dunes" that are sandy and face the sea.

29th Jan10, Embleton Bay, 8am

Very windy morning with clouds scudding across the sky bringing hail showers and sunshine alternately every few minutes. Trooper had turned to head back but changed his mind when he realised he was head on into the whipping sand and hailstones skimming at dog-height across the beach.

So we retreated up to the top of the highest dune which is a fine vantage point as can be seen.
