Although we have been moored up in Totnes for the last few days, we hadn't checked out Totnes itself.
So, today was the day for checking out Totnes. Paul and Julie swung by in the morning to say their farewells as they were heading off back to Maidstone.
Once they had gone we went for a walk around Totnes. As the title of the post says, OMG ... this is the place we have been looking for, it is fantastic!
So what do we like.....
Quirky small shops and cafes, pubs with live music, alternative type people, no chavs, a river running through the town, boats, mainline railway to London, beaches close by, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a steam railway to Dartmoor. What more could you want?
The only downside is the weather - we don't know what the winters are like but all the locals we have spoke to reckon its not too bad.
Unfortunately the camera battery went flat so not many pics today ...
I love the name of this place, check out the link here for the Australian definition of a Bogan!
Of course we are still going back to Australia but this is the place we could both very happily settle down in one day.
Tomorrow we are off on a 'round robin' trip....down the river on the ferry to Dartmouth, then on a steam train to Paignton, then the bus back to the site.
