- (124) Jumilhac-le-Grand run
Oh, she is sweet in the sunshine.
- (113) Diving Board
- (111) Ugly Bird carefully parked up in Sidford
I still don't like leaving my beloved out in full view but let's face it, despite my love for her, she is too old for a tea-leaf to have much interest in her. But the thought of vandals still worry me. Still, here we are in Sidford, a few miles inland from Sidmouth. More on that later...
- (108) Hook Undercliff, looking back
And as usual, I am climbing! I need to get back up to the cliff top in order to continue. Very pretty part of the walk and not to be missed. I saw lots of cliff-dwelling black birds but they were just Jackdaws rather than Choughs.
- (106) Wintering up
I took this photo for our website. It came out well enough to post here.
- (106) Narrow path
It's narrow along here, but I only met a few people coming the other way, so it wasn't too much f a hassle. But although the damn path is still going up and down like a yo-yo, at least the footing is level.
- (103) Salcombe Hill
Wow, I've just come across that lot! This is the prettiest path I have been on so far (and that's saying something) But I am already into the contents of my Camelbak - which I actually remembered to bring this time. I also have some technical liners for my chap boots (that's doubled their value!) which are also having a big impact on my comfort.
- (103) Axe mouth
Axemouth itself is a bit inland. Dunno why. But I have now seen both the source of the Axe in Wookey Hole and it's last few yeards as a river before it enters the sea here. As far as I recall, it's the only river I have seen the start and finish of.
- (99) View back towards Exmouth
That's Sidmouth that is, so far below. And back beyond those red cliffs just out of sight is Exmouth, where I started this odyssey. It just somehow doesn't look that far somehow - must be an illusion caused by the cheap camera! :-)
- (99) Undercliff and Beach
That's the undercliff, sort of halfway down the cliff. The beach as far as I can tell can only be reached by boat. And yes, once again, I have climbed up a long way.
- (97) Inland walk
The walk occasionally heads inland to avoid the steep-sided combes caused by winter streams. Very similar to the barrancos I walked around in Spain. But these are much easier on the eye,
- (97) Undercliff
And indeed, in a very short time the path takes me into a large undercliff. It's narrow, dark, muddy (I WILL keep slipping over!) and not at all pleasant - I just want it to be over. The guide book says it's reminiscent of a jungle. Yeah, well, I didn't like the jungle much, either.
- (95) Salcombe Hill
A rather flarey shot showing that I am still nowhere near the summit of Salcombe Hill. Those steps really sap your strength both going up and going down.
- (95) Steep Climb
Oh goody! More steps to climb. And the sun is belting down. Branscombe is the next stop, once I get over this hill.
- (90) Sid River walk
Fortunately, the walk into Sidmouth followed this pleasant riverside park. Early in the morning, it was a lot less arduous than concrete pathways
