Coastal Path - Second Stage
On Monday 12th June eleven tough mileaters gathered for the second stage of the coastal path walk. A lovely day for walking with cool breezes and decent visibility. After parking in Lyme Regis and catching the bus to Chideock, we started by walking to near Seatown before the uphill stretch to Golden Cap (191m)
Taking time to get our breath back and admire the views whilst knowing that the toughest bit was over we leisurely continued to Charmouth over the undulating coastal path enjoying harmonious conversation and a bit of politics. Good job we all agree!
Descending down into Charmouth it struck us that this section of the route will be gone before too long and another part of our walking heritage lost forever. Very sad. Charmouth gave us time for tea, sandwiches and shopping.
The last leg along the beach to Lyme is only possible at low tide, which it was, resulting in only a short section on ankle threatening rocks and the rest on sand. Lyme did not disappoint as we sat by the cob, quaffed a drink and looked back on where we had just walked, feeling justifiably proud. Well done mileaters and here’s to the next section.
