Pirates Ahoy!

MV Freedom at the Kings Arms Weymouth

MV Freedom at the Kings Arms Weymouth

Sunday morning saw an early start for many of the locals of the Kings Arms in Weymouth as they set off for a gruelling 13 mile coastal walk from Lulworth Cove back to Weymouth. The walk was in aid of a local charity with a Pirate theme.

The Kings Arms very kindly put on bacon rolls at 8am for breakfast then the group were bussed accross to Lulworth Cove where they were met by M.V. Freedom, as vessel run entirely by charitable donations to help the disabled get to sea.

The first half of the walk to Osmington Mills is an extreme test of stamina with very steep and high hills to climb directly following the cliff line along this beautiful section of the Jurassic Coast. After that the walk gets easier but on this very hot day and with their legs getting tired the walkers were pleased to see water refills at each check point on the way.

Back in Werymouth after 4 or 5 hours solid walking, there was a Pims and nibbles reception laid on by The Chatsworth Hotel before the last half a mile over the bridge back to the Kings Arms. The afternoon entertainment was provided by Cheryl Lee and Mark to the delight of the locals and the visitors all.
