Looking back to Plymouth across Jennycliff Bay
The day started with a ferry ride across Cattewater to Mount Batten. Shortly after I started to walk along the path I went by Jennycliff Bay which prompted the need to take a picture so that I could show it to Jenny, my wife. The resulting picture also gave a nice view across the bay back to my last glimpses of Plymouth before I rounded Staddon Point.
A little further along I stopped for a break just past Holiday Centre at Andurn's Brake. While I was relaxing and eating a quick snack a mother, daughter and grandchild came along and, having seen the poster on my backpack, asked about Hazel's Heroes. We chatted for a long time and I found out that I was sitting on the memorial bench for the mother's husband. She was pleased to see it being used.

I stopped for lunch at Wembury Point before continuing on to Wembury arriving at my B&B in the mid-afternoon. When I arrived at Wembury I started looking on the internet for my accommodation for June 17 to June 19 at Salcombe, Torcross and Dartmouth but with no success. With my search efforts I managed to use up all of my mobile (cell) phone minutes from the phone calls I had been making. Finding accommodation is increasingly becoming a problem. Making your reservations before you start the walk would seem to be a good precaution, but what happens when the unexpected happens and you don't make it to your destination?
