Day 5
Leaving Kingston our route takes us through woods on what our leader describes as a Walkers' Walk
Down the Golden Valley
And out to the coast
Along to Chapman's Pool
A bank of bluebells on the side of the valley
And a steep descent
A nice family photo
Then we take a break
A small village nestles in the hillside
And then we are confronted by
A steep climb
Reaching the top those able to
Take in the view
After which we continue to St Aldhelms Chapel
A look inside
Old coastguard cottages nearby
And the coastguard in the coastguard station watches the sea
A memorial
To radar research
Continuing along the coast path
Mustn't go too close to the edge
An old quarry
Provides a lunch stop with views
A seagull full of egg mayo sandwich
Looking back into the quarry
A bearded neandertal man coming out to see what is going on
A school party on Dancing Ledge
As we look back at our path
Stone wall with a difference
The lighthouse at Anvil Point
Nice flowers
More quarrying
Including Tilly Whim
Now blocked off for health& safety
As we near Swanage we look along the coast to Old Harry and Poole Harbour
Walking along the front looking like lost children
The harbour behind us.
