Highs

  • Watching the waves from the viewing platform splash Birling Gap’s beautiful white cliffs.
  • Beachy head and the Seven Sisters. Although I inwardly groan when I see a steep uphill section, I actually rather enjoy the effort of trying to maintain a steady rhythm and getting to the top. The views are usually worth it too.
  • Having to company of Jon (ex Sussex Search and Rescue, now RNLI) on the Birling Gap to Newhaven leg. Always lovely to have the company of someone who knows the area.

It’s always a good idea to look behind from time to time. This lighthouse was hidden from the other direction.
