Mileaters do the Coastal Path - Part Three

Coastal walk part 3 d
The first day of November 11 hardy mileaters turned up at the village green at the crack of 8.30am ready to tackle the 3rd part of the south coast path. After parking at the National trust car park in Burton Bradstock we walked down into village to board the x53 bus to take us to Chideock. Safely disembarking at Chideock we headed off down the lane to join the coastal path.  But a near murder took place along the lane when Stuart was almost scalped by a huge bramble thrown at him by Doctor Dave. Blood spurting Dr Dave could only offer a plaster. But tough old Stuart declined and  marched on  not worried he could be scared for life or bleed to death.

Entering the car park at Seatown we could see our path leading us to heaven. There were several rather large ups  and some of us wished we had taken oxygen cylinders with us. Reaching Thorncombe Beacon a well deserved coffee break was had. Making our way down into West Bay it had not gone unnoticed that  only 7 of the 11 actually did the coastal path, the other 4 took the gentle scenic route around the cliff tops. Don't worry they will not be allowed to live it down as they know who they are!

Arriving in West Bay a little earlier than planned we hung around the public toilets before going into the cafe for lunch. Here we were joined by 3 other mileaters who although the mind was willing their bodies were not and we had a great lunch before the next big climb faced us.  A great sense of achievement was felt by all as we reached the summit (Everest here we come) . One more up that was all we had left, but look who could we see descending down the hill towards us, Barbara and Ann. Stop stop we signalled but no down they came only to find out we were going  up that way. Yes the very last up and we all would have jumped for joy if only we had had the energy. Never had our cars looked so beautiful, never had our muscles ached quite so much. But for those 7 who walked it all, stand tall and be proud this is your certificate of achievement. Well done.
