Coastal Morning

If the weather forecasts are to be believed, the first Friday of the Easter break is the only one that isn't going to be raining and miserable. This meant a trip somewhere special needed to happen.

Only a short distance from where I live on the Jurassic Coast is Durdle Door. A natural limestone arch along the south of Dorset.

The formation as well as the accompanying cliffs provide a great walk on a sunny day like I was lucky enough to have. After parking in the nearby car park, I started by walking over some rolling grass hills across to one of the higher viewing points.

The pathway to the beach is steep and after a few rainy days was quite muddy. This effort all paid off at the bottom with an incredible view of Durdle Door on the right, with an arguably better one of Man O' War Bay to the left.

The beach extends about 1km down to Bat's Head, providing a popular beach for tourists to spend their days.

The walk back up the hill maintains the amazing view before hopping back in the car.

I'll be posting these along with some others on my Flickr & Instagram over the next few days so follow me there to see more!
