Walked from: Barnstaple, Devon
Walked to: Woolacombe, Devon
Date: 24 February 2016
Distance: 22 miles
I’m tired and my feet may be about to drop off (yes, I believe it is a recognised medical condition), so I’ll keep this short.
I walked a looooooong way today, but in the most beautiful weather imaginable. Quite a lot of it was flat, some of it was bumpy. There were more river estuaries for the first half of the day before getting back to cliff and beach action in the latter stages. The last three miles seemed to take forever to walk and my hotel in Woolacombe is really weird (you get what you pay for and I’m not paying very much at all) – but has incredible views… and a bath (bliss!) Oh, and as it really hasn’t been in the least bit windy today, I have to conclude that my face caught the sun.
Think I’d better go have a lie down. Have some sun-drenched photos to prove I’m not lying through my teeth about the weather…
