Plans, flaws and being overcomers

Plan 1
Walk across the golf course, onto the beach, around the Three Cliffs and back up through Pobbles.

Flaw 1
I'd forgotten to allow for the flowing of the tide, meaning Pobbles was cut off from Three Cliffs beach.

Plan 2
Go over the top via this sort-of path.

'No, George and Holly, that way is far too precarious.'

Flaw 2
I almost throw a wobbly but keep telling myself, 'Just keep looking ahead; don't look to the side. Whatever you do, don't look to the side.'

Flaw 2 is discovered when sort-of path suddenly peters out just here rather than on top of cliff.
Plan 3
Sit and think. Then send George to find a new path.

Now I know what you're thinking but you underestimate George when he has dinner on his mind. He found a path for us to battle our way through to the very top. Yay for George!

Our reward is a deserted Pobbles just for us.

The water was surprisingly pleasant. If I'd had a bathing costume or a towel at least and, more crucially, there hadn't been a fierce under-current I might even have ventured in myself.
