Easy Saturday

It shouldn’t be, I have so  much to do to prepare for Christmas, even a couple of gifts still to buy and cards to write. I wanted to photograph something on Topsham quay but rain stopped play and brunch was taken instead, a full veggie breakfast at Route 2. Next stop Sidmouth, where I wanted to walk on the beach and again take photos – rain stopped play. On the way home we stopped at the farm shop for bread, and to check out the displays of luscious tuck from near and far, all very mouthwatering.

The current Higher Ferry from Dartmouth has been operating since 2009, but it has a history reaching back to the 14th century. In the 1920’s it became  a car ferry and now operates for 16 hours each day, and apart from the queue it takes 5 minutes, saving a 26 mile drive that takes 50 minutes. A beautiful leisure drive but tedious if it separates home from work etc, connecting the South Hams with Torbay on the A379.

This was a very grey day back in June, but it’s a nice little jaunt in the sunshine!
