Fifty-four of us are in Swanage for a three day walking holiday. We travelled here by coach and have taken over the Grand Hotel and spread out into The Pines Hotel nearby. The weather is perfect, not a cloud in the sky. The forecast is for the same tomorrow.
We disembarked at Corfe Castle and set off in two groups to walk eastwards on the Purbeck Way. Those on the shorter walk stopped at Ulwell and were collected by the coach and taken to the hotel. The others continued across Ballard Down to Studland where they stopped briefly for lunch before continuing on the coastal path to Swanage.
