Thrills on the edge I Cliff Walk

Embarking on my next expedition, I ventured into the heart of North Devon, England, a realm known for its stunning landscapes and rich history. My destination: The Valley of Rocks. This dramatic geological formation, sculpted by nature over millennia, called for a daring adventure and the drone was ready to capture it all.

The journey, rightfully titled “Cliff Walk”, was a blend of adrenaline and awe. It involved a seemingly precarious hike along a narrow path that twisted and turned for miles on the edge of the cliff. This was not for the faint of heart, as the steep drop on one side promised an unforgiving encounter with the roaring sea below.

Launching the drone was a calculated risk. The persistent wind threatened to dash it against the rocks or send it plunging into the icy waters of the Bristol Channel. Even the local seagulls presented a surprising challenge, displaying an uncanny interest in the buzzing intruder sharing their airspace.

Yet, the risk proved worth it. The drone soared above the cliffs, capturing the rugged beauty of this windswept landscape. It continued to ascend until it reached the higher ground known as Lynton. From this lofty vantage point, the charming coastal village of Lynmouth lay spread out below, a beautiful tableau of homes nestled amidst the vibrant greenery, bounded by the shimmering sea.

But the true stars of this journey were the mountain goats. Resting casually on the steep rocky outcrops, their white forms were stark against the grey rocks. A sight usually reserved for only the most adventurous climbers, the drone allowed us a unique glimpse into their lives, sparking the curiosity of locals who gathered to watch this unusual spectacle.

The Valley of Rocks cliff walk was an adventure in the truest sense – risky, thrilling, and utterly beautiful. And so, with the drone safely landed and a day etched into memory, I bid farewell to North Devon. Until our next sky-bound journey on Skydrifter, keep exploring!
