... especially stretching north to Hartland Point. No less spectacular were the rock formations on the beach. This first inlet or mouth and beach, we really appreciated. However, this stretch of the SWCP is a series of deep valleys and inlets, meaning we would walk down a steep valley side only to then have to climb out the other side. As the afternoon wore on, so the strength of the wind increased and we struggled to maintain our usual speed of between ...

... s working at the loom. She gets paid on Friday!" What song is that from? We pressed on to the small village of Abbotsham, where we were meeting university friends of mine, Tammy and Chris. They had brought lunch but, like JOGLE veterans of old had already sweet-talked the local pub into allowing us to eat our sandwiches in their garden. Impressive! We then set off to rejoin the SWCP.

This way was deeply sunken, lined by trees on both sides. The road did however cross two valleys, which were surprisingly deep and steep, given that we were now off the moor. ...

... before climbing out of the valley up Lype Hill, the highest point in the Brendon Hills. The views from here were stunning, including seeing the sea due north of us. Excluding our walk by the Severn Estuary, this was our first sighting of the sea since looking out over Edinburgh. As Robert said, that day seems a world away, a completely different trip.
