Week 2: Westward Ho! to Padstow 'On the Path' Day 10

Word of the day - Weak
Bude to Crackington Haven
- 11 miles
- 2,700ft of ascent

Tim was very tired today after being ill in the early hours.

Very windy all day, stopped for a cup of tea in Widemouth Bay - a very lacklustre venue. However, the rock formations on the beach were fabulous.

Interesting to see sessile oak trees at Dizzard - said to be a remnant from the prehistoric woodland that once covered the whole country. Passed a bench indicating only 500 miles to go to Poole - Hurrah!

A long and tiring day with a few steep ascents. Not a great day for art!

Treated ourselves to a night at the Coombe Barton Hotel in Crackington Haven - fabulous room overlooking the beach and it had a bath! (Thanks to the staff who took pity on us and looked after us really well)
