Yesterday morning some of the operations room staff at Portland met up at Durlston and began a coastal walk to Studland. With Austen as their guide they headed off to Peveril Point and then to Swanage Lifeboat house for a tour of the boat and a talk by the Operation Manager Capt. Hardy.
On wards to the pier and then for a coffee and tour of the station where I took over and Austen had to sit down having worn his legs out.
We then headed down Burlington Chine and the beach to look at the landslips before heading up Sheps Hollow where the party headed to Ballard whilst I went to pick up the vehicle !
We all met up again between Handfast point and Old Harry and from there it was a stroll to the finishing point at the Bankes Arms Studland which strangley is a pub and most had a fine lunch and then to be taken back to Durlston and their cars.
An excellent morning and great to see our colleagues from the Ops room.
