The South West Coast Path
It wasn’t that long ago that we were all walking a few sections of the south west coast path. When I say ‘we’ it was the normal caravanning gang of Kev, Val, Jane and myself. We have set ourselves the target of walking the whole 630 miles over the next few years and as foreign travel seems to be on hold at least for the moment hopefully we will be able to get a few more miles under our belts………as long as we don’t have anymore lockdowns!
I am writing this blog whilst looking out of my study window at the rain lashing down on my recently polished car. I have just spent most of the day giving the motor a good clean and polish. Our household is in isolation after my dad was tested positive for COVID and hospitalised, and the 3 of us all then tested positive, so a good way for me to get some fresh air is to get a few outdoor jobs knocked off the list!
We were so lucky with the weather, it was less than a month ago and the sun was shining and shorts and t-shirts were definitely the order of the day!
Along with the stunning views and the good company, we were able to find a few geocaches. Val and Jane were very grateful for the moments when we were searching for a tupperware container amongst the rocks and heather as it gave them chance to catch their breath after climbing the steep hills.
You are totally spoilt for choice when looking for a spot to photograph whilst walking the coast path. However, Jane did have to ask me to hold my stomach in, so that she could get more of the view on the photograph!
Of course keep-fit Kev didn’t have to hold his gut in…………during lockdown he was out walking 5 miles a day and he was definitely a lot slimmer than last time we met!
