Yippee, an extra day off and good weather!

Roz and i joined the masses and headed off to Dorset, and the next leg of the Coast path.

We hit the road at 7:15am and collected a friend en route.

Before you ask, this isn’t mine.

We put £2.00 in the Worth Matravers Honesty Box, and parked at around 11:30am.  The properties here are fabulous, with massive stone tiles and local quarried stone.

Making our way towards Winspit we came across this confiding bunny.

Around the coast path there were various fading Oilseed Rape plants.

After a few minutes we saw a series of cruisers hammering across the sea, and then minutes later they all turned and splashed by once again.  It all seemed pretty pointless.

Full throttle!

We saw Guillemots, a Peregrine, Stonechat, Fumar, Cormorants, Skylarks (a plenty), Swallows, Blackbirds, Jackdaws, Song Thrush, and a friendly pigeon.

We were making slow progress, as there was intense heat and virtually no sea breeze.  Here we are at the Worth Parish Council RADAR sculpture, which is on St.Albans Head.

Further up the path was an 800 year old chapel.

And the coastguards lookout.

Thankfully there were plenty of benches perched along our route.

Then we came across a steep cleave.

Thrift lined some of the headland, adding colour to the vistas beyond.

Chapmans Pool was down below us, looking absolutely fabulous.

Our route here headed back in land.


But not before I took this on the self timer.


Hopefully we’ll be back soon!
