Knowstone to Exford

Still in shock after the price of last nights meal, £19 for a bit of pork belly, not much choice as it was the only pub in the village. 
The b&b hospitality certainly made up for the cost of the food.
After a few miles, I arrived at the start of Exmoor, marked by the second commemorative stone to to the founder of the walk. Looking back Dartmoor was still prominent in the distance.
The walk continued to be undulating, until I meet up with the River Barle, at the Tarr Steps, a crossing of the river and picnic area which was full of visitors and an ice cream van.
Supporting local industry, I participated in a chocolate cone.
The walk up the river to Whitypool was reasonably flat, but the terrain reminded me of the walk along side Loch Lomond, on the West Highland Way, full concentration needed.
Staying some two miles off the path at the Exford YHA, so some extra miles needed to get back on path tomorrow.
