livestock serenade and life on the range

Our Saturday started in the peaceful village of Kimmeridge and the top notch Kimmeridge Farm B&B: highly recommended.  Woke to a wildlife and livestock serenade:

A tough 16-mile Day 3 with many long, steep, precipitous ascents and descents through the Lulworth Ranges, a military practice area open at certain times and through certain weekends over the year.  We’d timed our arrival to ensure we had access. The views are stunning along the way: bright white, chalky cliffs, blue-green water, jagged outcrops.

A tad of a shock to hit big, busy crowds at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door, and yet more steep climbs towards the White Nothe and Ringstead.

Climbed Middle Bottom, as you do.
