Distance: 10.3 miles
Today's walk was fairly uneventful, but notable for one key reason: for the first time on the coastwalk I've crossed the Greenwich Meridian. There are three further occasions I'll cross the line, all near the mouth of the River Humber: Humberston, Sunk Island Sands and Tunstall. But those crossings are far into the future.
It was great to have some company on the walk too, even if Jon did keep moaning that I motored on a bit too much on the flat. (I make up for it on the hills; a day of climbing exhausts me very quickly.)
Although the walk starts and finishes on cliff-tops, much of it involves making your way through the towns of Newhaven and Seaford. Once east of the towns though, Seaford Head provides a suitably breathtaking view across Cuckmere Haven to the Seven Sisters. The cottages on the final descent provide perfect foreground for many postcard pictures and it's inexplicable that I didn't stop to take a photograph myself.
