Week 9: Abbotsbury to Poole - Day 57

Wyke Regis to Lulworth Cove
14 miles (walked 7 from Osmington Mills)
Word of the day: Chalk

It's been a fabulous sunny day, very strong easterly wind giving us wind burnt faces. Rolling green valleys, more eroded cliffs with landslips and undercliffs. We were spoilt by turquoise seas with lacy white edges against orange yellow sand. Tidelines of seaweed, dusting of silver on the surface of the sea. Too windy to use paint so had to do tonal sketches. Favourite place for me was Bat's Head. Massive white chalk headland with striations of silver grey.

First glimpse of the iconic Durdle Door - had to draw it even though it's been done so many times before.

On to Lulworth Cove which appears to shut down at five in the afternoon when all the coaches go home. 

Back to the campsite for a meal and to claim our pub quiz prize of a round of drinks - we had large glasses of wine!
