Only in Totnes #11

by

The day after ‘anchovygate’, the fishy trio still eluded me... but Mrs H and I had to pack our bags quickly, for we were off for two nights imprisonment in the best hotel in nearby Salcombe (thanks guys!)... but to get there, 13 of us would take the riverboat down to historic Dartmouth.

The trip down the beautiful, winding River Dart was wonderful... past vineyard, riverside villages and Agatha Christie’s house, to lunch for 14 at Rockfish on Dartmouth waterfront (aha! - fish at last! Brilliant!). The 14th delivered us our car.

Only 12 sailed back to Totnes. We’d been exiled!

    Fish and Chips and Salcombe I can't imagine a better retreat (its the foodie twin talking)

    Hehe! Do you know Dartmouth and Salcombe by any chance, Verity? In Rockfish, the chips served with the fish are apparently ‘limitless’. But we were limited by our own capacities! Good news for us is that Rockfish are opening in Salcombe too next summer! Yippee!

    I have a few in mind, Verity, never fear! Have you travelled to the UK by any chance?

    I thought you were in the UK, Verity.

    Great addition to the series, Neville.

    I woke up in Mars yesterday having mashed potatoes! Just don't drill me on the other ingredients;)
