From a logistics point of view, it makes sense to walk this section anti-clockwise as it means we can control the transport more easily. Train from Severn Bridge to Bristol during the day are few and far between and we would run the risk of just arriving after one has left and having to wait some time for the next one to arrive. Walking anti-clockwise we can control the travel option and once we arrive at Severn Beach it is just a matter of 'walking home'. From Clevedon we caught an early bus to Bristol where we had a quick run across town to reach Temple Mead railway station to catch the train. On arrival at Severn, we sought out a little bakery we had heard about to buy a packed lunch and ended up having a nice breakfast as well.
We had been walking for eight weeks and the ending was bitter sweet. We looked forward to returning home to days sitting in the garden remembering and recovering, but we were frustrated that Wales was so close we could almost touch it. As we left Clevedon the next morning it was with a travel itch that would need to be scratched in the very near future.
