Our chosen destination was to walk in the Golden Cap Estate that belongs to the National Trust. It is made up of rolling hills, pastoral fields, sunken lanes, ancient hedgerows and dramatic coastline and towering above all this is Golden Cap (the high flat topped hill above) which is the highest point on the south coast.
It is also in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it's easy to see why.

We didn't walk to the top of Golden Cap on this occasion but just enjoyed walking along many of the footpaths in the area , passing a few cottages and attractive farms.
It was so warm and such a beautiful day!
The National Trust have a small shop, we received a very warm welcome and were informed that we were their first visitors of the season, their having just reopened for the first time since the autumn.
On our walk back to the car we also noticed our first bluebell of the year!
It was unfortunate that our son wasn't able to join us until later in the day, so he sadly missed the walk but he did manage to enjoy the spectacular sunset with us in the Bay. It is a shame that the rest of the weekend's weather doesn't look so promising -at least we have managed to enjoy being outside for at least one day.
Our daughter made this amazing chocolate Easter cake. It was just as well we had walked a few miles beforehand! Wishing you a all a very Happy Easter!
