Day 51: Monday 6th June

IMG_0865A day full of interest today.  21 miles was just short of the plan but only by 1 mile.  Very hot again but things did cool down a bit in the afternoon.  The route today took me through The Mendips.  The biggest challenge was to make sure the footpaths I was using would actually get me where I wanted to go as the whole area is criss-crossed with drainage ditches.  Remember the flooding in the Somerset Levels?  I crossed the River Axe at one point, famous for having its source in the Wookey Hole Caves.

IMG_0872After a nice meet up with Hazel for lunch we almost had our 3rd “road closed” nightmare.  Fortunately, the road was closed to traffic but I was able to walk through the roadworks.  Hazel’s diversion wasn’t too bad either so no more than a scare.  All finished off with us staying with our friends Nigel and Bea (and dogs, Jake and Poppy).
