through wooded areas - this tree is simply amazing -
and on till we glimpsed Clovelly far below us.
This part of the walk is along Hobby Drive which gently winds its way down to the top of the village, and it is for most people, a gentle stroll, but both of us found this walking difficult. Downhill, on solid roads, even when a fairly gentle incline, was knee-achingly hard.
Tim stretched further and further away into the distance as I stumbled along behind - my excuse was taking pictures... but I actually found it tough going.
However, we arrived in Clovelly and were pleased to find our next abode DonkeyShoe Cottage.
The cobbled street is very steep and you have to tread carefully as it becomes very slippery in the slightest damp.
After we dropped our packs at the B&B we headed down to the quay and had a Devonshire Cream tea, which was yummy, and after, as we walked on the quayside, spotted a porpoise! Fantastic, and 'early' according to the locals.
There was also another lime kiln, and this lovely explanation (you will be tested on this at the end of the walk!)
Again we ate a delicious celery and stilton soup (I have the recipe!) at The New Inn, and then headed for bed.
