Durdle Door and Man-O-War
Keeping with the tour of the Jurassic Coast, the next stop was Durdle Door (obviously English name). A friend told me it would be a brief 15 minute walk down to the beach. It's brief because it is straight downhill. I'm fairly sure I saw a cow roll off a cliff, god bless it. But, let's just say you wear the proper shoes and actually show up to this location prepared, then you have nothing to worry about. And boy was he right, (thank you Stephen!) this location is other worldly. Either choice, right or left, red pill or blue, takes you to a beautiful beach.
Small round pebbles line the shore and for a moment the waters make you think you are in the tropics, crystal clear and beckoning for you to come in. If you do go in, wear a full wetsuit unless you're one of those types that happens to like long dips in freezing cold waters. I arrived late in the afternoon, the sun was not ideal for photos but it didn't make the experience any less extraordinary. It is a rare day in England to sit on the beach and soak up the sun. ☀️ I'm already planning my trip back but next time I'll be scheduling a dive trip and wearing proper shoes.
