Walk 45 - The Return of the MUD!!!

Seaton to West Bay 17miles

After several days/weeks of rain the mud has made a comeback with a vengance! I started the day in Seaton which has gone downhill since I last walked through it 12 years ago what a dump!

The walk started with a climb and that was the theme of the day!, mainly forest all the way into Lyme Regis then the proper climbing started with a big un out of Lyme and an even bigger un out of Charmouth ( 1 mile long!). Finally the mother of all climbs greeted me at Golden Cap 626ft(191m) which it turns out to be the highest point on the South West coast but the views were spectacular from the top you can see for miles! Finished with Devon today and onto Dorset....rattling thu the counties now!!!! Pic is of Lyme bay

Walk 44

Sidmouth to Seaton 10.5miles

A really nice day again today, started with a drive out to Sidmouth then it was uphill anddown dale for the next 6 miles I had lunch ( see Pic) in one of the nicest places so far on any of my walks. Walked via Branscombe and Beer the latter being one of my favourite places in Devon.

Walk 43......The Right Way

As the logistics of getting too and from Wales are causing me problems I have decided to walk in the opposite direction, the decision was an easy one, as it was 18 deg warm and sunny on a mid October day!

Dawlish to Sidmouth 16miles

Started with a nice easy walk out of the front door! then onto Starcross to catch the 9.50am ferry to Exmouth, the walking to Sidmouth was mostly easy and took just on 4 hours. Picture is of Salcombe Mouth.
