WEEK 50 Sidmouth, Devon to Poole, Dorset

105 miles walked

(total 2,947 miles walked)

What a fantastic week! The Jurassic Coast treated me well and I was lucky to have so many wonderful views (except at Lulworth Cove) as I walked through time.

This week seems to have been the annual British heatwave. It has been very hot, beautifully sunny and stiflingly calm. I have had to manage myself more carefully this week but it’s been worth it. The sea in Dorset has been warm.

As ever, staying with friends made things a lot easier. Washing machines are such a great invention. 

Me and Grace (if only she make me look so dishevelled!)
I finally finished walking the South West Coast Path this week, 11 weeks after I started. I have really enjoyed “following the acorn” and think I’ll miss it. Considering it’s only a small part of my whole trip, I was surprised at the sense of accomplishment I felt upon finishing. 

I made it all the way from Minehead to South Haven
