Today was definitely the hardest day of the two weeks! 16.5 miles wit a total ascent of 5100 feet. Over the two days we have walked 32 miles with a total ascent of 9300 feet, or to put in perspective 3 Snowdens.
We left our B&B at 8.50 and made our way out of Bude which is nice little town, up the hills to the cliff top paths and on to Widemouth Bay, some 3 miles away. From here we followed the cliffs almost all the way making a stop every 2 hours and a stop for tea at Crackington Haven. We had several hard climbs with lots of steep steps both uphill and downhill which took their toll on the legs. We got into Boscastle around 6.30 and checked into the Riverside Hotel which had excellent accommodation – baths in all our rooms- badly needed. We thought the cliffs over the last few days were harder than the Coast to Coast. So far we have walked over 140 miles and have another 40 to do by Thursday night. On to Port Isaac tomorrow -or Port Wenn as it’s called in Doc Martin! Spotte some seals over the last couple of date but hard to get photos. Photos of today below.
