A Friday Field Trip- Brownsham To Hartland Quay

I know I haven’t been around for the last couple of days, but we’ve had a visitor from London and have been out to the places everyone wants to see when they say they’re coming to see us. I put together a little photo tour to show you what we saw on our field trip.

I have to have frequent stops to record images like this…

It’s difficult to get lost when there are signs along the way like this one.

Sometimes you meet up with wooly animals like the one above.

Dylan the dog, waits for his dog walkers.

As I went to the edge for the shot, John snapped this one of me.

Okay…I know this looks funny, but look at the view. I was taking a picture not a nap.

This was not the only hill we climbed.

We walked this valley. It reminded me of Scotland.

Pheasant…we walked up them on and I got off a couple of shots. This was the best one.

The two dark spots on the path are John and his eldest daughter.

The yellow flowers are called Gorse…they grow everywhere and smell like coconut.

The walk was well worth the dramatic views.

More hills…

and even more hills….

Follow the arrow and go out about an inch and then down to see the woman swimming in the freezing cold water.

See what I mean…

If you look over to the far right, there is a wooden bench for watching the waves.

John was walking past this remains of an old building when the moon came out.

Elizabeth & John

We started our coast path walk at Brownsham and walked past Hartland Point where you can take a helicopter to Lundy, an island John loves to visit (we’re going in January ) and we finished at Hartland Quay.

  1. Thank you for that walk. How astounding are all those vistas?! I am sure I found my way to your blog via Corey Amaro’s Tongue in Cheek but I have yet to comment until this amazing walk. My husband and I long to travel to more country areas of England for such sights as these.

  2. Elizabeth,

    you must have walked almost as far as I did this evening………………’trick or treating’………………………………………….my 14th year of it!!

    I have to say I would have preferred your version!!

    Love Suzanne xXx

  3. Glad you all enjoyed the pictures from our walk.

    Leslye, from Spread Your Wings asked how far we walked in her comment above and John said it was about 10.5 miles. I have to say though that it felt like much more than that with all of the hills.

  4. These are the most scenic photos I’ve seen in ages, they make me just wish to be there…….I love the ocean and these coastlines are certainly nothing like what we have in Florida!
