After a bit of work sorting out a day where the three of us (Marie Nita and I) could all get out together. We settled on the 14th November 2011.
So we set off on the 14th at 9am along with the two Dogs Ben and Tia for Seaford,Sussex to walk the Seven Sisters from Seaford and ending in Eastbourne. After a drive we arrived in Seaford and parked up on the seafront, which as a added bonus was free.The mist still hadn't lifted and visibility was still reduced, much to our disappointment We sat in a shelter on the beach and had something to east and a cup of coffee,before we set off.
The Seven Sisters is the name for the undulating cliffs between Cuckmere Haven and Birling Gap. They are thought to have been formed by glacier melt water at the end of the last Ice Age: the melt water carved steep sided valleys, which were then truncated by sea erosion into the cliffs we see today.
We set off and walked towards the Martello tower on the seafront. The first part of the footpa…
I set off from the Hafan Y Mor Holiday camp in Pwllheli early to climb Snowdon. I parked up in a car park at Nant Gwynant at the bottom of the Watkins Path.As soon as I was out of the car,I was attacked by midges,they were everywhere. I walked over to pay to park.All I could see was a £2 tariff for 4 hours. I was gonna need more time than that.So I drove a little further up the road and parked for free,Bonus!
After a short walk back to the Watkins Path,I was on my way.
The Watkin Path is "the most demanding route direct to the summit of Snowdon", since it starts at the lowest elevation of any of the main routes. It was first conceived by Edward Watkin, a railway owner who had attempted to build a railway tunnel under the English Channel, and had a summer home in Nant Gwynant near the start of the path. It was originally designed as a donkey track and opened in 1892.
This is a circular walk starting and ending at Westminster station.
On 8th October 2012 I set off for a short walk around London. I didn't have much time so this made a pleasant break from my London Loop walks.
Again it was another wet day,so sorry for some of the pictures that have raindrops spoiling them,I did try my best to keep the lens free from rain.
I arrived at Westminster Station and left the station,walking towards Westminster bridge, stopped at the first traffic
lights on the corner (at the junction of Victoria Embankment and Bridge
Street). Behind me is Portcullis House, and in front of you, Victoria Embankment.
Portcullis House was opened in 2000, it hosts the offices for British Members of Parliament. There is an underground walkway
leading from the building through to the Palace of Westminster. Victoria Embankment was completed in 1870 and is a classic example of Victorian
construction and design. It was the first electrically illuminated stre…
