Turning back to July, when I spent a weekend camping down near the Jurassic Coast in Dorset and this stop at a National Trust property came once I had packed up, left the camp site and had begun the long journey home.

Dorset Coastal Walk – Winspit to Old Harry Rocks (Part 1)

Saturday 18th July 2015

It’s now been more than a week since my most recent trip down to Dorset. As the weather has changed quite significantly, I thought it might be a good time to begin retracing my most latest steps along the South West Coast Path.

In this, Part 1; I follow the SWCP from Winspit east to Durlston Head, which is close to the halfway mark on my walk.

Camping in Dorset

Is it possible to experience jet lag after spending two nights in a tent? Not to mention the 2-hour drive there and back. Because that’s how I’m feeling today, having only risen from my bed an hour ago after three enjoyable days down in Dorset.

It was my first proper experience of camping. My original plan was to head down there with a friend but, she was anything but well enough to travel come Friday morning – when you’re unable to experience a bit of the sea, sunshine and British heritage, you know you’re not feeling good! I fought my fears and headed down alone, without too much of a clue. Worst case scenario; I could always depart after the first night. But I stayed within the county well in to my third day (yesterday) before heading home.
