There is a sizeable lump of geology in the bay called Chapel Rock. It has many deep and high steps going up, down, over and around and today I managed to go up, down, over and around using the steps. The tide was fully out so the walk there was not too bad, we went the long way round, crossing the sand to avoid seaweed-covered rocks which, although would have been much quicker it could have proved to be much slower if I'd fallen and broken something.
I woke up at 5am, made some tea and sat in bed, looking at the Mount and Chapel Rock. It was surprisingly busy out there, I wondered if people were celebrating the longest day which set me wondering about climbing the rock. By 6.45 the beach and rock was deserted so I decided to go for it, fully aware that the rest of the day was probably going to be necessarily quiet. If you don't set yourself a challenge then you don't know if you can make it, do you? Walking to the Mount and then scaling Chapel Rock will give me the momentum and encouragement to keep up this physical work when I return home, I was slipping in my endeavours and must get back on track!
