Camp was quickly established. It was the first time that we had to use wedges to level the van across the axle. Whilst Lizzie sorted out the inside of the van, I put the awning, that we had bought at the caravan show up. Went up really easily in about half an hour. What a difference that made though as we could now store coats, chairs and of course Zoe's crabbing gear outside.
The view from the caravan was superb. Acres of rolling country side.
Monday was spent mooching around Salcombe. We went back in by Taxi in the evening, so that Zoe could indulge in her passion for crabbing, followed by dinner at the Fort. Spotted this amusing sign out side Bang Wallop, a photographers
Tuesday dawned wet and very windy, so after a lazy morning we headed for Dartington Cider Press. A collection of shops built at the old mill. We amused ourselves there before heading home via Dartmouth. Yes we missed the turning in Totnes!
Tea was cooked, then it began to rain, and rain and blow. Gales were forecast so I checked the awning was lashed down. During the night the caravan swayed and the awning flapped, but come morning everything was intact.
Fine and bright weather greeted us on Wednesday morning and we had a hearty breakfast.
