Small ship that looks like it's been storm damaged. Sitting on the pavement, with a backhoe next to it.

Hiking Prep*

Ben and I are both kinda out of shape. Our hike in Devon will be an easier walk than the Great Glen Way1, but I think we’re in worse shape than last time. :-/ So I made up a hiking ramp up schedule: 3/17 (that’s today): 4 mile loop around our town. 3/23-24: 4 mile loop with hills, probably through Quarry Park 3/30-31: 5 mile hike 4/6-7: 6 mile hike, probably from home into Half Moon Bay, stop for lunch, and back 4/13-14: 8 mile hike, maybe in San Pedro Park? With full packs. 4/20-21: We’ll be packing, so we…
Map of the route we'll be walking in England, from Exmouth to Lyme Regis. You can't really read the place names. :-/

Hike in Devon

We’re just booking our hike in Devon. Last year in Scotland, we hiked the Great Glen Way, walking from village to village, staying at B&Bs. We’re doing a similar trip this year. We’ll be walking a section of the South West Coast Path, from Exmouth to Lyme Regis, along the Jurassic Coast. It’s an easier trip, with the long days being less than 10 miles. I think we’ll cover 30 miles over 4 days. We opted for an extra day in Sidmouth, so we can bop around the village or go for a shorter loop walk. I’m really looking forward…

Oban & Kerrera

Kerrera is the strip of an island just off the coast of Oban. We did a 7 mile loop hike, with a castle and a tea garden in the middle. It was charming, and the ferry drivers are friendly! (There’s just the one ferry. It goes about 500 feet each way. It fits a car, but I don’t think non-local cars are allowed.) (Also, I’m trying out galleries.) Hope you enjoyed the random photos! I hope I’ve figured out which gallery settings I like best. 🤔
