Mount batten to Wembury

This walk started from my home with a mile walk to the Barbican and a water taxi to take me to Mount Batten. My plan was to walk from Mount batten to Wembury along the South West coast path. Along the way I looked for opportunities to explore the area off the beaten track and to collect materials with a view to making simple pieces of art
.This video shows my trip on the water taxi.

This video shows a snapshot of my walk which was approx seven miles long. (not edited very well sorry I will re-post asap)
I looked for opportunities to go off the beaten track but after falling several times I decided that staying in track was a much safer option.
As I began to walk from From Mount Batten, up over the hill towards Jennycliff, I started to think about what I might find along the way, Where my walk would take me, what places of interest I might stop at and when to call it a day.
