Week 1: Minehead-Barnstaple 'On the Path' Day 5

Day 5: Word of the day - Windy
Woolacombe to Braunton
- 6 miles

- 500ft of ascent
- 9,888 paces

Forecast was for force 8, gusting 10; so decided it was too dangerous to go round Baggy Point. Walked the length of Woolacombe Beach, amazing patterns formed by wind blown sand, then took a short cut through the lanes to Croyde where it started raining hard. Unable to work and not wanting to get soaked we bussed it to Braunton for lunch.
After the rain we walked out to Vellator (old port) and further down river but it was still very windy and uninspiring.

Today was a wash out, no sketching and too dangerous to go near the edge.  We will return for a day walk around Baggy Point later in the year. Considering the awful weather that we had all week, I am still really pleased with the work that I have done.

Next blog entry will be from the studio.
