Swanage to Houns-Tout

A drive to Swanage on 11/9/11 enabled us to re-start the walk. No pubs on the front, although the Ship nearly is, so we walked on. Sid was taken by surprise and received a wet foot, but it didn't bother him as much as his hangover. On through Durlston Country Park and pass the various quarry ledges. Pretty scenery, but the hills after St Aldhelm's started to take their toll. As we approached Chapman's Pool we had to decide our route back to Swanage. One more hill we thought. Houns-tout is quite steep and so that was enough to make us head back.

The route along the ridge to Kingston is straight forward and we called into the Scott Arms for a well deserved pint. The intention was to catch the bus back to Swanage, but on arrival at the bus stop a sign said that the buses were not passing there on that day. So we continued down to Harman's Cross by which time Sid was ready to get the train to Swanage and the Ship.
