No pictures for this one I'm afraid as camera batteries flat. On a long weekend in Dorset. Parked up in Studland. Not very enjoyable walk on busy road up to path up Ballard Down. At that point, things changed for the better. Long grassy hog's back ridge, dotted with prehistoric remains and with spectacular views over Poole Harbour and Swanage Bay. Descended towards fantastic coastline of sheer chalk cliffs, stacks, pinnacles and caves, one of which is Old Harry and another is his wife. Back to Studland. Joe's cafe on the beach does a nice chocolate brownie.
