LDWA Dorset Doddle
« on: 12:57:05, 23/08/19 »
A few photos from last weekends LDWA organised "Dorset Doddle".  32 miles (and a lot of ascent/descent) along the coast path from Weymouth to Swanage.

Hmm can't get embedded images to work :-(

Nice photos. I have never visited Dorset - an oversight that I must correct one day: the coast looks lovely.

Lovely pics - remember those switchbacks well, especially the last set of steps up to St Adhelm's Head
So many paths, so little time

Great coastal photos, the ascents and descents look quite formidable  O0

I've walked this stretch a few times, in both directions. When walking from the east to climb to Swyre Head, it looks like you are approaching a near vertical wall  :o. But I've always found the decent a much bigger strain on the old legs. They've usually turned to jelly by the time I get down to Durdle Door.

Great photos  O0
