Day 41 & 42
Abbotsbury to Ferry Bridge 11.5 miles; Isle of Portland
A very meandering morning walk through pastoral inland pathways before the coastal path reunited with a parallel track along the Chesil Beach and the Fleet Lagoon. Chesil Beach is considered to be one of the finest storm leaches in the world, protecting the Weymouth lowlands and the Fleet Lagoon, and is pretty remarkable that we’ve been walking alongside of it since yesterday. Better views today, and it continues to feel more like summer than fall!
A day off from the normal pace today to take in the Isle of Portland, along with Weymouth itself, and to make a few needed reservations with our itinerary after we finish in a few more days. A sweet day all around but another day where visibility was near zero due to humidity and haze.
