Pauls Circular Walk from Dartmouth via Blackpool Sands – Saturday 30th March

30 people met in glorious springtime sunshine for the walk to Blackpool Sands. Firstly we crossed the Dart on the passenger ferry before the short walk to Dartmouth Castle.

We then ascended the steep path onto the higher coastal path, stopping at the top for coffee and oxygen, supplemented by delicious birthday cake served by birthday girl, Ann, herself.

We then walked to Blackpool where most of the group had lunch on the beach with even more delicious cake served, this time made by Maggie.

Returning via the stunning valley inland path we were rewarded by the sight of a hillside carpeted in wild primroses before commencing the steep decline into Dartmouth for the return boat.

Approx 8.4 miles completed.
