Dartmouth Pannier Market

Gale force winds send billowing cumulus clouds tumbling down off Dartmoor today and put the wind up the tail of the Morgan as we head down to Dartmouth via Kingswear and the lower ferry. 

Lower ferry crossing

Tug boat diplomacy

Two hours free parking

The steam train begins the scenic run to Paignton

Bayards Cove just out of the wind

No queues for the ferry today.

We spent a pleasant couple of hours wandering along the water front and shopping for some Epiphanes boat varnish. We enjoyed a  meaty bap sitting in the pannier market and browse some of the stalls of curios and collectables. 

Thoughts of dietary  restraint all but forgotten, we enjoyed ice cream at Bayards Cove, sitting beside the waters edge as the ferries came and went.  So relaxing in warm sunshine and sheltered from the wind just here.
