I’ll be honest I’m not sure why I walked from home on this day, I just did. It might of been the lack of gumption to drive to somewhere else, either way I have a few good options on the doorstep and I took advantage of one of them for a decent walk which takes very little time. On the way down to Bovisand beach I took a slightly different way to the beach via Down Thomas, which was different from the normal path which heads straight down to the beach past Bovisand Lodge. Apart from the slight diversion the walk was over familiar ground with decent views even in these mainly cloudy conditions.
