Day 56 passing the end!

Our wild camp in a cow field worked perfectly! We were packed and away just as cows started to mill around the gates of our field, perfect timing !
Over the style and across the A39 to follow the old road tabandoningo Bucks Cross before heading west towards and into Woolfardisworthy , mixed feelings getting here after abandoning the trek here last October! But a quick breakfast from the shop I visited last year soon had me back on route and finally past this nice little village!
Taking a route along roads south west , meant we constantly dodged tractors as they cut and harvested the local meadows, many a mile was trod this way till a break was taken in this beech wood in the picture a lovely spot! Then it was on and into Kilkhampton for a great Sunday roast at the New Inn, out of town and another road lead us back to the coast with great cliff views, and spotting what may have been a Peregrin falcon! Strong cold winds off the sea meant we pushed in land just north of Bude to a campsite and it's take away meal facility was happily used!
Mostly under wind we settle in for the night..
