Coast & Cornwall Day 2 – Durdle Door & Swanage

The weather was a little hazy again today but I did manage to get some quite nice shots. I decided to visit the Purbeck Jurassic Coast today, and started off at the picturesque Durdle Door:

After a couple of hours scrambling up and down the cliffs, I headed off to Norden Station to catch the Swanage Railway to Swanage for the afternoon:

The ride from Norden is a pleasant one, and takes about half an hour. The train drops you right in the centre of Swanage and after finding some lunch, I went for a potter around the bay. Folks were out enjoying the beach, pier, diving, fishing, rowing etc. Here’s one guy setting off for a paddle around the bay:

To round off the day, I drove up to Studland Head where the South West Coast Path starts – all 630 miles of it – to Minehead:

I’m being rather lazy and doing my coastal tour in the car! See a few more photos taken today.
