So, we quickly abandoned any plans this morning of trying to struggle home. Last night it didn’t stop snowing till well gone four thirty in the morning, forecast was it would stop at three.
We found the room we were in was available and at a much reduced rate; so the decision to stay put was a no brainer. The papers couldn’t get through, many shops didn’t open and although we got through yesterday before the A30 got closed, there seemed little point in a six hour return trip home. We went for what Mary called a ‘bracing’ walk but my opinion was ‘unpleasant.’ Until a nice hat to keep my ears warm was purchased.
Another perambulation after lunch; always a joy to wander round somewhere uncluttered by people. But just look how the car and road got more and more covered last night.
Looking out of the bedroom window last night was like some special effects jamboree; the snow swirled and fluttered alarmingly down in bucket fulls. Anyway this morning after a hearty breakfast we headed off.
A bit slushy and very slippery in places but what great views and wildlife.
A memorable visit; we shall see Pennie on the way home tomorrow and we are not going to forget Dartmouth in a hurry. One thing getting snow off the car but out of the boat!
Oh yes, and proof of those closed shops.
There we have it and irony of ironies they held a wake in the hotel restaurant this afternoon, so it’s not open tonight. You couldn’t write it, could you?
From a little less snowy Dartmouth we say farewell.
Couldn’t sit on the bench but that didn’t bother Teddy.
From Mary and Me, thanks for reading! Till the next time, take care. ☃️🌨❄️⛄️
