Day 36; Swimming

After our package of our next lot of maps hadn't been delivered to our campsite we had to go via the Royal Mail delivery office. It made a change to our morning routine. We went for breakfast in Bridgwater before setting off for Roadwater- which is in Exmoor National nature park. 

The walk was beautiful, such stunning views, brilliant sunshine, and giant hills. 25% gradient up, 25% down. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. The only very small downfall to this wonderful day was my feet. Again. The blisters made it feel like walking on glass, some of them were now bleeding too. A strong dose of paracetamol and ibuprofen saw me through the day, until we reached our home for the night. 

A beautiful farmhouse; Kate and I enjoyed tea and scones on the lawns outside before I went swimming in their outdoor heated pool- amazing! I am loving this! After an hour in the bath we were both relaxing in our dressing gowns writing home with the t.v. on. Small problem was we haven't had dinner or lunch- and there aren't any restaurants here... breakfast will be served soon.
