Shingle & Storms

02nd November 2009
An interesting weekend weather wise, with a bright, warm day on Saturday followed by a very stormy Sunday.
I went to Charmouth, just east of Lyme Regis on Saturday. Here i walked the 5 1/2 miles to the bottom of Golden Cap and back, the south coasts highest cliff. The beach here is an energy sapping mix of small round pebbles, lined by huge landslips. The base of Golden Cap requires quite a hike to get to over difficult ground from both directions, so i was lucky enough to have the place to myself. I chanced a trip to Lyme Regis for sunset afterwards, which was pretty unspectacular to say the least, but i managed to ge a few shots i was reasonably pleased with.

Sunday started incredibly stormy, and a trip with friends to watch the waves crash along the eastern end of the Jurassic Coast was in order. A good stroll was had by all, including the Pippin the Cocker Spaniel, who's seemingly limitless energy put us all to shame. We visited Seacombe Cove and Winspit, both taking a battering from pounding waves.
