1st Day

  • 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.
