Monday 12 May. Amanda joined Josephine and myself for today’s walk from Croyde and up to Baggy Point. I can’t say that we stopped for coffee as this was taken in a cafe in Croyde prior to starting the walk. We also bought Cornish pasties from the local shop which had 11 different varieties on offer. Eventually we made a start to the walk at 11:15 and climbed steadily up narrow country lanes to Napps Cliff. The lanes had a stone surface which had been grooved over the years by wear from cartwheels. From Napps Cliff we had views over Putsborough Sands towards Woolacombe and Mortehoe.
From here, it was steadily uphill until we reached the end of Baggy Point. A break was taken along the way to consume the pasties that we had bought for lunch.
The weather was much better than we had expected as can be seen from the following picture and I ended the day with a touch of sunburn.
When we reached Croyde Bay, Amanda decided that it was a good opportunity for a paddle in the sea.
The route was only 6.3 miles with 1,150ft of ascent.
