    Travelling to Plymouth

    September 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    After leaving Glastonbury we drove up onto the Dartmoor Moors stopping for " Cream Tea "at Widecombe-in-the-Moor .....their version of our Devonshire Tea. We also got served real leaf tea, which is a nice treat for us after getting tea bags all through the tour....
    The Moors are very desolate, wild ponies, lambs and cattle roving through there.
    We arrived in Plymouth in time for our optional cruise of the Plymouth Harbour and we were treated to Blue Skies.....Plymouth is where the Pilgrim Fathers left from to embark on their journeys around the world. It is also home to a huge Naval Base.Read more

    Cardiff to Bath

    September 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    This am we crossed the long Severn River and travelled to the Georgian town of Bath, the home of the famous Roman Baths, that is supposed to have therapeutic remedies. I don't think I would have liked to bathe in there, we spent 1.5hrs looking around the town. Beautiful architecture, quaint streets.

    Day 2 in Plymouth

    September 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    Today we did a sightseeing drive across to Cornwall to the little seaside village of Looe. Another village of small quaint streets. Had coffee then strolled around down to the beach. We had sunshine and warm weather.
    We returned to Plymouth to wander around the quay area. We are very taken with the little villages.
    We have partaken of an rhubarb crunch and strawberry clotted cream, ice creams...very delicious I must say.
    We are going to walk down to the quay tonight for fish and chips.

    September 6, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    We travelled here after leaving Bath...this is a very alternative town, a bit like our Nimbin. We have been having light showers today...not a lot of blue skies these last few days. We drove through a village called Streets, where we saw a huge distribution centre of CLARKE's shoes. It started as a little family business of a Quaker family and still going strong.

    October 18, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    I went back to St Michael's Mount this morning as I wanted to see it with the tide in. I was about 15 minutes earlier than yesterday and the difference was striking. It was bitterly cold. I hadn't bothered with my hat, scarf and jacket as I only wanted to take some photos. I was well and truly cold when I was done.

    I spent a lot of the day driving back and forth across Dartmoor, mainly because I didn't like the look of some of the roads the GPS wanted me to go.

    As soon as I crossed the cattle grid onto the moor I saw two horses. The were brown and white so not true Dartmoor ponies apparently.
    Later I did see some in a paddock that seem to be true ponies - one colour and very heavy coats. They were very inquisitive and friendly. I wanted to pat them but visitors are requested not to touch them. I did pull up some of the grass on my side of the fence and feed them that.

    Unlike the Yorkshire moors the sheep and cattle here were happy to be on the road and not in much of a hurry to move out of the way.

    I can't book into my accommodation until 8pm as they are at yoga so I had a look at the coast. There must be some super secret way of getting to the beach that only the locals know as every time I turned down a road that looked like it lead to the beach I'd get partway down to be met with a sign "no access to beach!"

    St Michael's Mount before the tide is completely out.
    "Really? You want me to move?"
    They looked like ponies but they could be cows
