My apologies to Sue in Suffolk but I had a moan yesterday.
I was feeling a little weary after my walk on Sunday and had planned to do some laundry on Monday morning, but P was bouncing up and down with enthusiasm for us to walk the route that he had run the day before. To avoid the Grumps I agreed so laced up my walking shoes and duly followed along.
We started off at Port-e-Vullen beach, about 2 miles around the headland.
For the first 45 minutes of the walk it was a long, fairly boring, drag up the steep tarmac lane to the top of the cliffs. The hedgerows were quite pretty though.
At the top P led me through the wooden gate to the coastal footpath which leads along the clifftop back down to the beach.
Oh my. I could see straight away that this was going to be a less than enjoyable experience for me.
- Hay fever sufferer - LOTS of long grass swaying in the warm breeze...Tick ✔
- Person with inner ear balance problems - very narrow, steep, unstable path with loose stones and a sheer drop over the edge....Tick ✔
- Oh and talking of ticks, 🪲 plenty of tall, dense bracken overhanging much of the path for you to brush through. Luckily I was wearing leggings tucked into my walking socks.
