Plymouth and Tavistock.

Thursday 20th May.

There was no Ho Ho Ho of pleasure as we visited Plymouth this morning. We parked at the Park and Ride next to Plymouth Argyle football club, the parking was free and it cost us £5.60 return for the bus. The bus driver gave us some instructions as to how to walk to the Barbican/ Plymouth Hoe.

The weather was horrendous, the rain was horizontal and the wind so strong that we struggled to stay upright, in minutes our legs were soaked so we admitted defeat and headed back into town.

We’re having a lovely time.

It was a short drive to tonight’s site which is on the outskirts of Tavistock, no sea views but we are surrounded by pleasant countryside.Tavistock is a market town in West Devon situated on the River Tavey it claims to be the home of the cream tea. It has a good range of shops and a pannier market.

We walked into Tavistock via a park alongside the River Tavy. unfortunately as we arrived in town some of the shops were closing for the day so I think we may visit again tomorrow morning.
