3. Coleton Camp, Kingswear, Froward Point, Coleton Fishacre 2018:04:23

A 7 mile walk - but strenuous.

The lane turns into a track, then a path down through woodland.

...

This bank is always thick with primrose and bluebells in the spring

...

The coast path goes steeply down, and then steeply back up again. A lot of steps!

...

Some excellent views west along the Devon coast

...

And the entrance to the river at Kingswear

...

Gorse in full bloom surrounds the path

...

That looks like a square rigged sailing ship  zoom in to view

...

The path continues to have steep ascents and descents

...

Path lined all the way with primrose and violets

...

The white sea campion

Small azaeleas

This is a superb site for a sheltered garden

Camelias still looking superb

We then continued along the coast, but didn't descend to Scabacombe. Looking east towards Berry Head
