Weymouth → Osmington Mills

[Riviera Hotel]

Distance: 4.82 miles
Ascent: 297 metres
Duration: 2 hours 11 minutes

« Castletown | Lulworth Cove »

What's the point of walking if you're not having fun? With that in mind Emma and I knew fairly soon after setting off this morning that we wouldn't reach our intended destination of Lulworth Cove. We found ourselves walking straight into a strong wind as we headed out on Weymouth prom and even so were outpaced by a limping, bearded, 'serious' coastwalker.

By the time we were at the massive Riviera Hotel at Bowleaze Cove the wind had been replaced by a few spots of rain. We booked a taxi to pick us up from the Smugglers Inn two miles further along and settled into a more enjoyable, less stressed finish to the morning's walk.
