DAY 10: Boscastle to Bude (16.86m)

All around the village of Boscastle there are plaques announcing that this or that building had been rebuilt or reconstructed following the flood of 2004.

Appropriately enough I wake up to rain for the first time in my walk. Seeing that the rain is forecast to continue all day I decide to avoid the cliff top coastal path and head onto the roads.

Nearly 17 miles of rain drenched country road take me to Bude via Crackington Haven (and a bacon sandwich) and Widemouth Bay (and a pint of Korev).
