The path goes along Devon and Cornwall's rugged north coasts and their less rugged south coasts as well as Dorset’s chalk cliffs. I read it on recommendation because I was - am - thinking of walking the same coastal foot path, although not with with a dog and not in one go like Mr Wallington.

Two books in one, I enjoyed the walk around the South West Coastpath more than the rowing up the Thames river. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. It’s more about mark than boogie , that’s the only disappointing part about this book, I would like to have got my idea of the character of the dog. Raynor Winn mentions it in The Salt Path as being a book she’d read years before starting out on her own walk along the path.

In the second story, the author and Boogie take a rowing boat along the Thames, from London to its source in the wilds of Wilts/Glos - also an enjoyable light read only slightly marred by the introduction of a repellent love interest! A gentle meander around the south west peninsular with one man and his dog during the period of time when the rest of England was getting all agitated about a few wind swept sheep farms in the South Atlantic. At first glance 500 Mile Walkies may seem a little ephemeral and lacking in observational muscle, however the author had a perceptive eye for what mattered most and makes light of what must have, at times, been a demanding walk. Mark Wallingtons travels with boogie are books that are very good to go back to after a read that has taken a lot of concentration and investment.

A well written and humorous book about one man’s travels with an urban dog along the SW Coast Path, mostly living on Heinz soup and Kennomeat! For those wanting both a stove and light that will operate off a small gas canister, Coleman once produced what was probably the lightest lantern option.Mile Walkies' tells of how the author decided to walk from Minehead to Poole, following the coast line through Devon, Cornwell and Dorset. Nevertheless, it is a very entertaining read, and probably the book I have read more often than any other. Three Points of the Compass dives into the history of a post box originally destined for overseas but instead found its way on to British streets. Their titanium Siphon has its faults, but these are mostly balanced out by simplicity, small size, light weight, robustness and performance.
