Started the day with a great breakfast at The Quay Inn of a kipper and two poached eggs I spoke to another guy who was starting the walk today but he was slackpacking and only going the first 9 miles before his suitcase caught up with him.
With it been a fine, cold day and arriving at Porlock at 1pm I decided to carry on and get to Lynmouth. It got pretty tiring towards the end as the hills are relatively short but a lot steeper than in The Pyrenees.
Biggest problem is the diabolical mobile phone coverage, the poor iPhone has been ¨searching¨all day with very intermittent connections. In Lynmouth my hotel The Bath Hotel (an apt name as my room has no shower but a huge long bath) has yet to hear about this internet thing. So I’m ensconced in The Rock House Hotel drinking Guinness and eating fish & chips to try and replace the 4500 calories that Fitbit things I’ve burnt walking the 49,000 steps and climbing up 441 floors).

Here is my Everytrail of the day (Hopefully the pics will get there before the battery runs out).
