Week 9: Abbotsbury to Poole - Day 58

Lulworth Cove to Kimmeridge
8 miles
Word of the day: Ranges

Started the day with a bacon butty on the beach at Lulworth Cove. Whilst walking through the artillery ranges we visited the fossilised forest that had tree stumps that were hundreds of millions of years old.

After a stiff walk up Bindon Hill we stopped to sketch on the way down to Arish Mell - had to move on quite quickly because it was too hot.

The walk was graded Severe today and after the awesomeness of yesterday I enjoyed the walking but didn't sketch a lot. I find some days I prefer to absorb the landscape knowing I will be able to recall it from memory later.

Relocated to Tom's Field in Langton Matravers - a great camp site. We last stayed here 22 years ago when it was literally a field with a tap owned by Tom!
