15.3.17 coastal walk
25 years ago when the Mileaters walking group first started, they did some of the South Coast Path. On Monday 13th March, 15 of today’s group led by Roelie and Phil along with a dog, set off from the Martinstown’s village green to walk in their footsteps. We drove to Lyme Regis, parked the cars and caught a bus to Axmouth bridge. Immediately the walk was up hill through part of the golf course. Then came the coastal path and mud – lots an lots of mud. There wasn’t much let up from the mud even though the sun was shinning and a beautiful day for walking.

We came across an old sheep wash that had stayed intact with the landslide many years ago, it was a great place for our coffee and snack break. Once refreshed we moved on to battle our way to Lyme Regis through yet another mud soaked path.

15.3.17 coastal 1During this walk the unusual call of a bird could be heard; Oh Ah, EEK! We soon discovered it was a very rare Celia bird who was very vocal each time she slid on the mud and EXTREMELY vocal when she ended up on her rump in the mud! The biggest casualty this time was Malcolm’s walking pole which broke in half when he also succumbed to the mud.

Every now and then we had a view of the sea or the coast which was just stunning and we remembered why we came to live here. The ups and downs were soon taking their toll and the slippery mud making it hard to get a good footing, had meant it took longer than anticipated – so a pub lunch was out and tea was more on our minds.
15.3.17 coastal 215 very weary and extremely muddy walkers arrived back at the car park – only Ollie the dog seemed unfazed. Not all had the energy for the pub (or clean clothes) but a few well earned pints did go down well.

The next phase of the walk will be undertaken maybe when the weather has been drier. Note to all – Gerald’s mud walk has been knocked off the top slot!

Next walk is 29th March, led by Richard and Celia.
