It was lovely to see Kerriann and Hugo at lunchtime. They came to top up my supplies of maps and clean clothing – the only problem was that Kerriann forgot the batch of maps that I will need in the next day or so. Never mind. She will meet me tomorrow instead.
I can now say for the first time that I feel as if I am walking away from home. Until the last day or so I have been getting closer to Boscastle – now the distances from home are growing by the day.
I am not sure that camping here tonight was a good idea. Apparently it will rain tonight. I am in a gorgeous spot called Shirley Pool on Dartmoor and my tent is lovely and dry after a night in the drying rood at Okehampton YHA where I stayed last night.
Lets see what the night brings…..
