Devon Coast to Coast in Aid of Epilepsy Action
I left a very wet Wembury, on the Devon South Coast, following along the Erme-Plym Trail to Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor. The rain didn't stop all day, and it made for a very unpleasant experience. Next day, I picked up the Two Moors Way, crossing Dartmoor to Scorriton. The rain held off, but the march from the previous day had taken its toll on my feet. Next day, I set out again, and the heavens opened, and within a couple of miles, I abandoned the attempt at Newbridge. I looked into carrying on by shortening the mileage for each day, but accommodation couldn't be altered. Also, I no longer had a support vehicle for the rest of the week and my feet needed some recuperation.
