After a beautiful winters day spent with clear blue skies and brilliant sunshine, I decided to grab the camera and take a late walk along the South West Coastal Path just before sunset and see what I could get on camera.
So here is one way from my house, down our country lanes, with pretty leaf colours all around the public footpath and the start of the SWCP.
Once you get past this old stile these are the first views you get looking towards Berry Head
I decided to go the other way towards St Marys Bay
A view through the hedgerows, which stop you falling off the cliffs
A few of the autumn things I saw along the way
Lovely green banks on either side of the footpath, well sheltered from the sun and wind
Very higgledy piggledy steps
Rewarded with a great view of Sharkham where we often go walking with the dog and where I still haven't taken you-sorry!
St Marys Bay below
The land is very unstable along here and this part of the cliff is shingle. Soon part of the path will fall away here, this is just to the side of my feet. I was trying to show how high up this bit of path is as I'm looking down and across to the South Fort of Berry Head.
I'm on my way back home now and just about to turn up the other public footpath having walked a loop of the path behind the holiday camp.
Horses and ponies are here all year in the field that runs alongside the path
Almost at the top of the path to join the road now and looking back down across the fields towards the sea and costal path. Its a view I never tire of, just a few minutes walk from the house.
December tomorrow-it's all going so fast. I got the Christmas decorations down from the loft and have decided to go and pick out the Christmas tree next Saturday. Marldon Christmas Trees is a local business which grows their own trees on a farm in Paignton. It's great fun deciding on a suitable tree and even more fun trying to get it into the car!
Looking forward to Dartmouth by candlelight next weekend, so get your hat and coat ready!
I hope you all have a great start to December
