According to Steve it rained all night, Lynn slept through this. A final downpour while Lynn made breakfast, it then remained dry for the rest of the day, except for another downpour mid afternoon.
A steep climb out of the campsite to rejoin the MMW and we headed up to Dunkery Beacon, the high point of the day. Unfortunately, we were in low cloud at the top so cannot report on the views.
The route dropped down towards the pretty village of Wootton Courtenay, within half an hour the clouds had lifted and the views were amazing – should have had a lie in.
Another very steep climb takes us up and over to the seaside town of Minehead.
The MMW took us into Minehead High Street right by the ‘The Duke of Wellington’ Wetherspoons. Rude not to. Steak Tuesday was hard to resist unfortunately the waiter bringing our meals had a spectacular trip as she was approaching our table. After a major clear up operation and re cooked meals we re-supplied in Minehead and enjoyed the seafront England Coast Path to Home Farm campsite at Blue Anchor passing Butlins and Dunster Beach.
The new England Coast Path, 2795 miles in length, there’s a thought.
Steve was entertained by the West Somerset Steam Railway which runs from Minehead to Bishops Lydeard including a stop near the campsite in Blue Anchor.
