Surly Moonlander; Dune trails, Gullane Point

Stills taken from Go Pro HERO 4 Session camera....

A lovely cold crisp winter morning, and a 2 hour cycle with some filming at Gullane Point dunes aka The Reserve, these dunes have no name on maps as they did not exist 80 years ago.
They now tower 70 feet above a WW2 Type 27 Machine Gun box that when built would have looked over the shore line, and that building`S 8ft sides are buried by sand, as are most of the anti tank blocks that were built in 1940 as part of the `Coastal Crust`,
Only the blocks on higher ground have escaped the encroaching sand...

From the blocks i rode along the dune tops to then descend to the high tide line and around the Reserve Point for some beach combing before returning to the van and home to get on with other stuff, make the most of the daylight!...


Wee film,
