we arrived fairly tired at Porlock after wandering through beautiful woods with many trees blocking the path - the result of all the recent snow,
and stunning views,
and amazing buildings.
There were streams running where streams don't usually and we had to cross several, improvising all the way.
When we rang the bell of the Sea View and had the most lovely welcome "That must be Ruth" came through the door, and we were welcomed into Gill and Tony's lovely home from home.We really felt part of the family and were so snug and comfy.
Next day, after a delicious breakfast where we sampled Gill's scrumptious homemade marmalades (the plum and greengage was my favourite!),
we set off for Porlock Weir and then round the coast to Lynmouth.
This is the beginning of this section of the path and it took us through glorious woods (many fallen trees blocking the path... you'll notice a theme!).
