Short walk from Lulworth Cove to Swyre Head
« on: 20:19:05, 11/11/18 »
Had a couple of hours spare on Friday so had a quick walk from Lulworth past durdle door on to Swyre head.
All the photos are taken on my phone.



Going up the path towards durdle door, looking back towards Lulworth cove 






Couple of photos of Durdle Door, one a panoramic.








It was extremely windy, up to 50mph gusts, the good lady not looking impressed on the way up to Swyre head 😂





And a view along the SWCP

Really good photos, I must get myself a better camera (although perhaps it is the operator!).

I know but you haven't seen my phone!  It doesn't do anything clever apart from the phone and text!  It only gets an outing when I go walking so that I can phone home to let the better half know that I am OK.  The rest of the time it is in my wardrobe! :D

You can get a cheap smartphone these days that will allow you to take some no e photos 😉👍

I must find one that suits my unprofessional skills as I hope to walk the Camino next year subject to my wife's health.  Whilst my camera is OK for photos for my journals it would be better to have a more up-to-date one that can do other things e.g. an alarm clock. A friend of mine thought all phones had an alarm until he looked at mine!  What phone did you use?

I use the huawei p20, it's got a really decent camera and good editing function as well. I'm sure you would get some great photos with it or something similar, they really are easy to use.


My nephew walked the camino a few years ago and more recently the Pacific crest trail, unfortunately he had to stop 3/4 of the way in due to injuries but said it was memorable.

Thanks, so lucky that the area is only a 30 minute drive away from my house.

Lovely photos of a stunning area but Oh those  ups and downs roller-coastering between Lulworth and White Nothe; not recommended after a particularly 'good' evening in Lulworth YH :-X
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park
