LEJOG DAY 17

So much a better day today compared to yesterday, and all down to easier mileage. Finished the day at my daughters flat in central Bath just after 4:30 so had tea and hot buttered crumpets.

Coming over Combe Down and the views of Bath open up to magnificent effect and it was down hill all the way.

It feels lovely here and a day off will be just the tonic to ready myself for two weeks of Offa's Dyke.

I have enjoyed the Mendips for the last day or so; there is an intimate feel to the relationship between man and countryside - the buildings seem to complement the landscape. It is a place where man and nature seems to be in balance.
