Firstly I would like to thank Jeanette for the "Ewe Rock" award. There are loads of other blogs out there more worthy of an award than mine but thank you anyway. I would also like to thank the few readers out there that stick with me, particularly during the summer months when I only blog maybe once or twice a fortnight, again thanks.
Now the blogs that I am passing this award on to,
1. Martin @ Coombe Martin Life.
2. Bob @ Taxi Tales.
3. Fennella @ Rookes Nest.
4. Peggy @ Day to day life of a very lazy gardener.
5. Daffy @ Approaching 40.
Now down to tonights quick bitsa blog. My last post covered our recent walk to the Light house at Bull Point, Morthoe. As promised this blog follows the return journey along the cliff path.Below this set of 96 steps ascended one of the many and varied inclines on this hard (for us) route.
Please Click on any picture to enlarge it.
Below. At the top of the first hill after leaving the lighthouse, this view looks back and you can just see the tops of the chimneys of the keepers cottages, these cottages all have real open fires, as well as basic central heating, imagine on a windy wet night sitting in front of a roaring fire,with views over the wild ocean what could be better?

Below. This view is looking down on the semi private "Rockham" beach. This beach is really secluded and is reached from the cliff top by a set of 65 steep but hand railed steps.When I say semi private its because the beach lies at least 1.5 miles from the nearest road. The nearest access point is through the "North Morte " caravan/camping site , this is a steep 500 yard climb away.
Notice the coastal path which leads on through to first "Morthoe" then a mile further on the surfing village of "Woolacombe".
Below. We climbed up from the top of "Rockham"steps beach through the lovely "North Morte" camp site, here you have five fields and dozens of acres of beautiful coastal view fields. Before we settled on our present site we spent 12 happy years visiting here at least once sometimes 3-4 times a year. There are fields with electric hook up points and all on hard standings and four huge fields and headlands, where its possible to literally camp alone and on the edge.We camped and brought our camper van on different occasions, the site has a well stocked shop and 30 or 40 static vans for hire, some sleeping 8-9 people. The site has a large childrens play park and a lovelly well mown grass dog walking area.The site owners are really friendly and will do anything to make your stay good if they can (not getting commission by the way).We would probably have been on a seasonal site with them now, if they had a seasonal pitch available a few years ago when we were looking.
Below. A similar view from one of the camp site fields illustrating the views you could wake up to in the mornings !!.

Below. This picture is of one of the caravans on site, notice the hard standing for both caravan and Awning, this is so usefull when the weather is very wet as the entrances can get very very wet and muddy on grass.
As a final note both Sue and I both now have our motorbikes MOT'd, Insured,Taxed, and tested all ready for riding on our return on Tuesday.

The cliff path of 96 steps would be hard for me! I remember when I was a young girl I would 'do' the Cathedral Tower steps in the city weekly for sport! 325 steps! I think there is many more than 325!
I can see the chimneys! How lovely they look, it's like a glimpse back in time. I loved the winters when I was little, I would sit so close to the coal fire, almost on the hearth and I wouldn't move until my family would shout at me, telling me I was singeing! :o)
Rockham Beach looks idyllic, look at the calm water and blue sky! Beautiful.
Bob the joke is so good! I almost burst something laughing so much! "Shake willy at wife and shout Woo-Woo!" ;o)
Many thanks for the award! Ewe do Rock!!! (I love it!)
Hope you are both ok!

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
