Minnows Caravan Park, Tiverton, Devon

Friday 11th May 2012.

It has stopped raining, we are amazed!

But, today, we are scheduled to leave Baltic Wharf. It is a place we would come back to, but this visit has been marred by the appalling weather.

We pack up and head off for Tiverton, Devon, who knows we might even have some good weather at long last.

As soon as we are parked, Kathleen takes up her fairweather pose.

The site is right alongside the Great Western Canal, it is close to a village called Sampford Peverell and about 7 miles from Tiverton (via the Canal towpath).

I manage to drag Kathleen out of her seat, once I have finished getting everything set up and we get ourselves out in the freshair and sun.

This is real "Midsommer Murders" country!, the village could be the setting for the show.

Saturday, the sky is blue, the sun is shining, and it is even warm!

We pedal off, along the canal to Tiverton.

This, is Tiverton Basin, with a floating Bar and Coffee shop.

Kathleen accomplishes her mission and finds the Catholic Church, in preparation for going to mass, tomorrow.

On the way back, we encounter this horsedrawn barge, now adapted to carry tourists of  course.

A brisk pedal back, to complete the 15 mile round trip, and we catch the last of the sun.

Then we buy our evening meal from the Fish and Chip van which visits the site on Saturdays.
