Day 3.
Lihou to Rousse tower 9 Miles.

The shingle beach at L'Eree is not very easy to walk on and it can be avoided by walking on an easy path that lies between the beach and the road. You may want to explore the grassy fringes of the beach as the whole area here is a nature reserve containing a wealth of interesting plant life. Look out for the path on the right hand side of the road about five minutes into the walk, this path leads to the Le Trepied Dolmen which according to an information board was the meeting place for the local witches a couple of centuries ago. Back on the main path, which by this time is along the main road, you arrive at the little village of Perelle Bay, here make another detour to the charming little St Apolline's Chapel. If there is no service going on when you visit, be sure to take a look at the 14th century fresco on the ceiling depicting the last supper. A section of easy walking that took us along the beaches of Vazon and Cobo bay with a visit to Fort Hommet on route, allowed us the time to take a attractive nature trail that begins next to the playing fields in Cobo Village and winds it's way up through a Glen to Saumarez park, which is well worth a visit for it's Folk Museum alone. Back on the firm sandy beaches of Saline and Portinfer bay good time is made to reach Rousse Tower the finishing point for today's walk.
