Day 08l

Yup! I made it!

All 120 miles (ish) of the trip.

Just my own two feet; and that's about it really. The end of the trip. Another journey over. Try it some time. Its a pain to do but, the memories linger. You'll be glad you did. Honest!

My beard got a longer over the 8 days without a trimmer and despite the rain, I think I actually gained a few shades of sun tan too! Yes really! Impossible! Check for yourself in the pictures!

Thanks to all those who came along for the ride and texted, mailed and phoned. You know who you all are. It was great to know that while I was actually on my own, I wasn't really gonna be on my own forever.


Shall I head off on the South West Coast Path next?


Day 08k

They have a surprisingly steep railway up a cliff!

Only a few meters to go and I shall be finished. Never quite sure whether to laugh or cry at the end. :-) :-(

Nearly there.

I think, my feet got wet.

Something made me smile anyway!

Day 08j

The river Lyn reaches the sea.

The tide was out.

Making it hard to get my feet wet!

Cute pub

Looking east along the coast

Day 08i

Looking back some more.

The coast is nearly here.

Never got to do this, which was a shame!

Houses... the end is in sight!

Nearly in the town.

Day 08h

Finally it got sunny and dry enough to get back to a T-shirt

Nice view of Lynmouth in the distance. Journey's end.

Trail into Lynmouth

Gorse looking pretty now the sun finally shone!

Looking back...

Day 08g

Bye bye Exemoor.

Going, going, gone!

Good advice! That's what this break was ll about realy.

The roads are steep here!

Sea coming up.... somewhere soon!

Day 08f

This is actually part of the Tarka Trail as well as the Two Moors Way.

Look! I can see the sea! At last!

Leaving Exemoor behind.

Not so wet any more.
