Kilkhampton to Bude

We caught a bus to Kilkhampton today and then walked back to Bude.
Kilkhampton is about four miles from the coast and we started by following a cross country route that included some very muddy sections. In one place the path had turned into a little river, courtesy of some torrential downpours yesterday. We had to do some leaping and balancing to avoid sinking up to our ankles, and then we reached a ford with a picture postcard, thatched cottage right next to it. It had pink roses around the door and was gorgeous- although not as practical as our campervan.
When we reached the coast the walk along the clifftops was spectacular, as it has been for all of our outings in Cornwall. We arrived back in Bude in time for a coffee with my mum and dad, and then back up on the cliffs again for the hike up to our camper.
