FolkestoneJack's Tracks

On and off the West Somerset coastal path

Posted in England, Somerset by folkestonejack on June 12, 2010

Another early morning start… but what a glorious morning. The unfolding landscape viewed from the number 28 bus looked particularly beautiful in early morning sunlight, half making me wish I could stop along the way and capture the moment that the next diesel entered the picture. Instead, I relaxed in my seat and carried on to Watchet.

After getting out of the bus I spent the day making my way to various spots around Splash Point, Doniford Beach, Blue Anchor, Ker Moor and Dunster – walking on and off stretches of the West Somerset coastal path. The sea breeze cut through the sunlit countryside and at times it actually felt a little cold, but mostly it was perfect weather for walking and photographing the railway.

The day ended with a return to ‘normality’ at Taunton. That is, if you can count the scenes of knights in chainmail wandering the streets as normality (ok, to be fair it was shortly before England v USA in the world cup!). Still, it had been an excellent day and even the result of the football match couldn’t dampen my spirits…
