On Dungy Head Again

Headland Heaven
On Dungy Head again, and what an awesome day

I’m sure I have posted pictures of this view before because it is a favourite of mine. This was taken recently on a day when I was playing ‘taxi driver’ to my wife and daughter, and having dropped them off, I had a few hours to spare before picking them up again. I decided that I would take a walk along the coast from Lulworth Cove and I walked the couple of miles up onto Dungy Head, intending to walk a few more miles along the coast path. In fact, this is as far as I got!

The day was bright and warm, with little breeze as I sat looking out across this view, and frankly, I just didn’t want to move, it was so beautiful. So I got out my sketch pad and just sat there for a couple of hours sketching the scene before me whilst a myriad butterflies fluttered all around and the flowers nodded their heads in appreciation. The only sound was the occasional gull, and the distant voices of people walking the ‘motorway’, which is what I call the part of the coast path that climbs from Lulworth to Durdle Door – it is a very popular path! What most don’t know is that just a short distance away is this headland which is off the beaten track and therefore comparatively untrodden…….but don’t tell anyone 🙂 !

Sometimes I love to walk miles and miles, but sometimes I just like to sit…….and with such an awesome spot, with such an amazing view, on such a fantastic day, why not!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my ramblings, and I hope you enjoy exploring with me.

Until next time,

  1. I’m sorry if it seemed strange for me to have commented twice on the same photo. I had trouble making up my mind on which to send, and mistakenly sent both. The scene and photograph of it deserved two. I love it! (3)
