After falling into a comatosed sleep. I found it difficult to get out of bed this morning. The B&B was again lovely and I had andy’s cabs picking me up and dropping me back to Coombe Martin. Will know better next time not to book accommodation £30 away from from your finishing point. Anyway he… Continue reading Day 4 Wet & windy
An easy start today, as I got a lift from Janna’s husband to Porlock Weir. They are a lovely couple I am just sorry because of the mix up I didn’t get to stay with them. Day 2’s walking was much more punishing than yesterday. I was going to Lynmouth which was 11 miles, but… Continue reading Day 2 F & B in the Woods & on the Cliffs
- 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.
