North Devon – A Bit of Walking, a Bit of Surfing   14 comments

We left TJF behind to chill at the camper while me, TBF and TJS went for a walk along the coast. We wanted to take a trip to Lundy but the only available sailing was this, our last day and it was only a short stop on the island. By way of compensation we saw the island ferry sailing by as we walked down to the coast path

Lee Bay (not the same one as we visited the day before) is the first spot we came to

Next was the rollercoaster of steep ups and downs that characterises coastal walking

It was a slightly overcast day but warm and still with dramatic coastal views to distant horizons

Jagged cliffs and rocky bays were the order of the day

Turning south at the Bull Point lighthouse

Perhaps a trip to Lundy should have been the order of the day. It was bathed in sunshine most of the day

We were heading for Morte Point in the distance but as lunchtime was approaching and we’d left TJF to her own devices we called a halt at a bench overlooking Rockham Bay and beach before heading back

The sun came out as we walked across the heathland back to Mortehoe and the campsite.

It’s a lovely place to stroll especially as the summer crowds had now largely gone

After lunch at the camper we headed back to Woolacombe Beach for some more surfing

The sun came out and it was exceptionally warm but the waves were nothing like as good as they had been a couple of days earlier

I still had plenty of fun in the kayak. A few photos taken from the boat

And our little weekend was over. Rather than waste a day packing up and driving home we had a rushed pack down and tea and headed home late to miss the traffic

Another superb sunset to finish off a splendid long weekend away
