Day-51 Pac man mode!

A dry woodland wild camp again with another warm night. waking hungry again I decided to alter today's route from the off the route stays the same keeping to the Coleridge way a long haul uphill through the lane pictured, down a short lane to court farm and I'm walking along idyllic valleys with steep sides that are Beech covered and lush! Makes a change to be walking along valleys in this are rather than up and over! To Kingsbridge and normal service resumes with a long long haul up Lype hill, a nicely rounded hill this one with wide panoramic views in the early autumn sunshine, a nice long easy downhill into Wheddon cross where a small Garage had a good sized store as part of its holding's, a good coffee and adequate bacon roll along with other provisions saw me sat down eating on a nice bank of grass over road from the store. Catching more sunshine in the process. A chap cycling came over for a chat, a fellow wild camper it turned out, who had been on a three day wander and camp trip. Interesting guy who's certainly seen the world!.
At Wheddon is where my route changed, sticking to the B3224 rather than heading for the moors I start eating up (pac man mode) road miles and pub stops first at Exford in time for a good Sunday lunch and then finally to the Exmoor forest Inn for a second Sunday lunch! And free camping in their back garden! Great and recommended pub!
