Beautiful 1st day, from Minehead to Porlock Weir, about 9 miles. Took the rugged path so challenging but scenery breath taking. Met a lovely couple from New York so took each other’s photos as you do. The weather was lovely, and didn’t need a waterproof. ( note to self need to get some Vaseline as chaffing thighs a bit of a problem as weather breezy) Stopped in a brilliant tea room called – the Kitnors in Bossington. Then onto Porlock and called in the church for a flower festival that was stunning. On to Porlock Weir which is a beautiful little harbour and a couple of hard earned San Miguels to finish. Janna kindly picked me up and dropped me back so need to sample the delights of Minehead tonight.
Unfortunately, Minehead was closed! But had good veggie sausage, mash & peas. Luggage transfer sorted.
I will be retiring again after a lifetime in the NHS and returning in 2016, because my pension wasn’t going far enough. ( I am a WASPI woman) I live in Northampton with my husband Andy & we have one daughter who lives with her partner in London. I am a keen walker and completed 300 miles of the Southwest Coastal path through August in 2015 Due to returning to work, illness of my father I have only just sorted doing the second half next June/July. As before I will record my journey from Poole, Dorset back to St Just, Cornwall.
