A walk along the cliffs

As usual, the weather didn’t promise anything (more rain in other words) on Friday, and as we had our packing to do, we decided a hearty cooked breakfast in the restaurant was called for, followed by a walk around the holiday park and along the cliffs to the south. As it turned out, I didn’t really enjoy the breakfast, I tend to grill mine when I do a cooked breakfast, and it was far too fatty for my liking. K enjoyed hers though. We then set off along the road towards the pitch area for anyone staying in tents etc, or who bring their own towing caravans.

It wasn’t raining thank goodness, and once we set off along the cliff top it turned out to be a very enjoyable walk.

There were supposed to be some newts to see around the walk but I didn’t spot any, despite trying to be as quiet as possible. I only wished that I felt up to walking much further along the path but as it was, I soon felt tired, and so we cut the walk short and returned to the holiday park.

You can just see what the surrounding countryside looks like around those parts, its spectacular, and besides enjoying the breath-taking views, there are loads of attractive wild flowers growing everywhere.


It had certainly been a holiday to remember this year, what with gale force winds and pouring rain, but nethertheless, enjoyable if only for the break away to somewhere different and which held some pleasant memories of when the children were younger.



  1. Thank you for sharing your holiday with us. The country-side, the views, intimate pictures of flowers and small objects, all added up to a most enjoyable experience. Of course, your delightful way of writing made the trip pleasant and like being there. Thank you!

  2. Some of this reminds me of things we saw on our trip to Ireland. I so much enjoy the wonderful sights that you've shared with us my friend.

  3. Only the Brits know how to enjoy a holiday with gale force winds and thrashing rain. Well lets face it if we didn't go out in bad weather we would not go out at all!!!
    Anyway there is no such thing as bad weather only inappropriate clothing...
    Now you can have a well earned and deserved rest.....

  4. I know exactly what you mean Diane, we do brave the weather don't we? (needs as must I suppose!)


What do you think?
