Oh the places you’ll go ….

Yesterdays long run went well, only another 11 miles but felt really good and in control of my pace so I finished it feeling quite similar to the start.  Up along the cliffs to Nash Point and then the length of the beach up onto Witches Point for a few climbs. A circuit of Southerdown beach then a scramble over Witches at low tide and then a run home via the ladders and my folks. I love saturday mornings!

First up – I think these are barrow mounds and Nash Point. There was a Bronze Age hillfot here

Steps – Lots of steps. From the cliffs you can see the stepped nature of the rocks on the beach. This is why beach running hurts sometimes. No wonder my ankles and knees protest.

Low tide and a part of a shipreck (I assume) is uncovered. Kinda cool but then ….

….. when you see it in context of being in the middle of the sand here you can only imagine everything that lies underneath ….

Witches point looking toward Nash Point. This is a fun scramble across which can only be done at low tides.

I found this in a pool left by a fisherman (along with other litter – arseholes) Not sure what it is but I was attracted magpie-like to the bright green and so I tied it to my pack and ran back with it anyway.
