Chideock to Annotsbury

Chideock to Abbotsbury

Miles walked – 0

When we got up, Colin’s Foot was still very sore, and he was concerned that perhaps his blisters had become infected. The B&B owner suggested that there was a medical centre in Bridport and kindly offered to give us a lift here. We shared out breakfast table with two American women, one a widow, who had come to see where her husband came from. After breakfast we got a lift to the medical centre. We didn’t have to wait long until Colin saw a nurse. She said the foot wasn’t infected, but gave him some iodine dressings. As Colin was still limping, we got a taxi into the centre of Bridport, bought some more dressings for him there at the chemist, then got another taxi to Westport.

This was where they filmed Broadchurch. It had rained overnight but was sunny again during the day by the coast, although quite breezy. We sat on the long stony beach for a while, then had a nice lunch in a café on the front (I had crab sandwiches, Colin a pizza). We then went back out onto the beach. I left Colin there and went for a walk along the beach beneath the cliffs, and up onto the headland, before going to sit with Colin again. It was getting a bit cool in the breeze, so about 4 we went and had a beer in the pub, then got the 5.25 bus to Abbotsbury. Our B&B was in a farm, a very old building. We went to the local pub for a meal in the evening – steak & ale pie, before heading back to the B&B.
