Beach huts at Westward Ho!

April 30, 2013

Beach huts at Westward Ho!

Westward ho! Was a pleasant surprise. Slightly jaded but with a nice feeling. There was a row of VERY jaded beach huts that with a little TLC would be delightfully retro. It was a blue sky sunny day when I met the walkers here. Overall we have been fairly lucky with the weather except for strong winds at the start and very cold nights.
I had another fantastic location to eat my breakfast when I dropped them off the next day. My whole day has shifted. We get up at 7am and away as soon as possible. We end up going to bed at around 9pm when it starts to get cold and after a glass of red wine!
We have now travelled through Devon and into Somerset. The hedgerows are full of huge lumps of beautiful primroses. I have driven through fabulous villages with thatched cottages and ancient churches. I fact the churches are proving to be very important. Not because I have suddenly seen the light but because they are easy locations to find on the map and meet up at. Also they must normally be on a road that Damnvan1 can drive along.
I succumbed in South Molton and bought a whole new patchwork project. This will keep me busy whilst I am waiting for the walkers- usually in a remote (sometimes beautiful) location
The walkers have crossed Exmoor and the Quontox hills
I have now driven a total of 950 miles and still counting. My project for tomorrow will be to find a supermarket for supplies and move onto Cheddar. I hope to visit Wells en route so I will let you know.

    Pleased all going so well and the weather is improving at last. You have been passing through Somerset where I lived before the Wirral, the Quantocks are beautiful, I still miss them.
