When it was time to go, various people turned back home or went their own merry way. Bryan wanted to do Ward Bridge but via the short route so although he set off with us he soon turned off for Higher Dittisham to Ward Bridge. Following my lead through Walkhampton and beyond were Yolande, Phil and George, and the two Grahams.
The scenery out there is fantastic, with tors dotted around us in the distance, and we stopped to admire the llamas of Sampford Spiney. Yes, we had some steep climbs, the toughest from Ward Bridge from a standing start after our lunch, but we all managed one way or another! We met Bryan once on the way round and then again as we stopped to deliberate in Yelverton who was going which way home from there. Graham J was going to show a few of us a back route from there to Plymouth avoiding the busy A road. In the end it was just me as George and Phil turned onto the main road again near Clearbrook. Not sure which route the others decided on in the end - possibly back down the Plymbridge track!
I was indoors by 3.35 having covered 35.9 miles today. My weekend total, having reccied the route yesterday to assess conditions on the roads across the moors, is 75 miles!
