Our coastline is arguably one of our greatest assets, and this week marks the start of a celebration of the South West Coast Path.
A group of walkers is covering every inch of it over the next few weeks, and our reporter Bob Cruwys joined them for the first leg:

It's the fifth Bank Holiday this year to be ruined by the weather.
Businesses in the region are counting the cost after another wet and miserable bank holiday weekend.
Heavy rain and strong winds put a dampener on many events that were taking place on the last public holiday of the 'summer'. Normally crowded beaches were empty and many holidaymakers left the region early. Visit Cornwall estimates that around ten million pounds could be lost from the local economy.
The Bank Holiday has once again proved a washout across the region, with heavy rain and strong winds putting a dampener on many events.
There's been heavy traffic on major routes as holidaymakers decided to go home early.
Some events were cancelled - tonight's firework display at the Torbay Regatta has been rescheduled for tomorrow.
Our reporter Jeff Welch braved the rain to see how people have been coping with a miserable Monday:
It was supposed to be Britain's greatest summer. The Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics were meant to boost tourism across the country. But the bad weather has caused fears that businesses here in the South West won't get the late boost they were hoping for.
