Today again was an easy, flat path, called the Tarka trail, a former railway. As such it has the advantage of being completely flat and car-free, but is popular and busy with cyclists. Also, being paved, it was harder on the feet than a dirt or grass path. However, with only 4 hrs (5 with breaks) I arrived at my booked Airbnb by 2pm.


I stopped at the small museum in Barnstaple for a few minutes tour and toilets

And there was a military helicopter doing manoeuvres overhead for the last hour or so. It kept going straight up and then straight down, flying high and low.

I'd only had oranges on my breaks, so I was really hungry by 4ish and headed to the Instow Arms for a great Cajun chicken burger with stilton cheese. Super yummy. Oh, and of course 2 pints of Doom Bar Amber ale to wash it down.

The view of Instow Beach from my table was an added bonus.

The weather was perfect; sunny and no wind. A good day in Devon.
