A Bridge To Far

September 4, 2011

Went to Devon for a long weekend, Aug Bank Holiday 2011. Went in the Motorhome, stayed not far from Tiverton in a place called Samford Peveril. We were right on the edge of the canal, which became the focus of our holiday, some beautiful walks, and nice pubs. Found a great pub called the Globe, beautiful beer garden and great food, had the dog with us so it was ideal. On the monday we set out for a walk, wife was in her power assisted wheelchair, the battery of which is supposed to last about 10 miles, we had walked about 4 miles when battery went dead … groan… so I had to push it all the way back, as it is powered it is not meant to be pushed and has quite a bit of resistence on the wheels, but hey, it was great cardiovascular excercise for me lol. Luckily the Globe was on the way back so we made a pitstop there, much beer was drank, was a bit hairy pushing the chair the rest of the way down the canal tow path lol. While we were at the pub our dog fell in love with a spaniel, poor little fella didnt know what to do with himself, was going mad to get at her 😉 was most upset when we had to leave, sulked for the rest of the day. Took some picks of scenes from the canal, also a record of all the bridges we walked under. Had a great time, as you walked along the canal all you could see was fields, and the occasional farmhouse, not a town of industrial estate in sight 🙂 Also at night when the sky was clear the stars were the brightest I have ever seen, it was fantastic. On the whole, apart from some raint days it was a great break, ideal if you just want to realx, and go for nice walks.
