Retracing our route from the night before, we descended the staircase back to the beach and set off along the sands. While still slightly chilly, the day held promise with few clouds in the sky and the sun moving ever higher up from the horizon.
After deliberation and consultation with the map, we decided to try and find a way through Easton Wood to access a public footpath that would take us to the B1127 which would enable us to go round the river. The alternative was to go back to Covehithe and join up again with the coastal path that takes a swing out in to the countryside to go round the water feature and the busy road. It was really frustrating because we could see Southwold was just down the beach but we would have to take a detour that added at least a cople of miles to the walk.
With the sun setting behind the boats and lovely meal inside us, it was two happy Vagabonds who wandered back in the gloaming to the camp and a well earned night's rest.
