Lou and I headed over to Dartmouth yesterday on the ferry. I thought I'd share with him my favourite end to a working day. After I posted about my marineering route back home when I'm working in the Kingsbridge/Salcombe area a friend told me that the Lower Ferry across the Dart is cheaper and prettier than its bigger brother up river. I use that one all the time now and have a multi-trip card which saves oodles of cash.
We found a lovely little bookshop, The Dartmouth Bookseller, in Fosse Street that has recently opened. Lou snapped up a signed copy of the latest Wimpy Kid,
Old School. Now I rarely buy new books preferring the library or charity shop offerings. However my friend, 'The Prof', had kindly given me a book token to spend at the airport before we flew out to North America. Bah! Neither branch of Waterstones at Gatwick take this method of payment. I'm glad now they didn't as I'm pleased that I was able to give business to a small independent store. I chose this even though, with my current status of new home spendiness, I see irony in that title!
