Beauty without restraint – South West Coast Path, England

Sandy Mouth, north Devon, England

We lit the fire with kindling and paper, then surrounded its flames with fragments of drift, their knots and heartwood damp from the rolling sea. With the heat warming our sides we lay upon the pebbles, the Atlantic in our ears, the stars in our eyes. It is times like these I will remember.

Later that night, on a headland above the swash, I unzipped my bivvy. The skies had clouded over and rain fell in thin sheets, blown left and right on the switching wind.

This is the South West Coast Path, peninsulas and valleys, time and time again, stars and rain, beauty without restrain.

    • I am so glad to hear that you are planning to expand your English travels. Whether you enjoy London or not, I certainly feel its not a true representation of England. If you do visit the South West Coast Path, I would love to see your photos!
