Child Free

Yesterday was meant to be LSR day but with Madam gone for the day, I opted for a day with hubby. We had a wet and dry weather plan, so glad we could do the dry one and spend the day outside in some glorious weather.

We headed to Dartmouth,


it was a little cloudy when we got there but soon brightened. We spent some time exploring,

and spaces between houses. need to be thin to go in this back garden!





We walked out to the Castle along the River Dart

admiring the views before stopping for Fish n Chips here


I took so many photos and lots for a new addition of Windows and Doors (knew you would be thrilled) (here is a preview

before returning to the car which was parked up by the Marina, I prefer these two boats to the posh, mega money ones and they lend themselves more to a photo.

Having spent the day watching the cars go back and forth across the River Dart on the little Car Ferry, even an Ambulance, it was fun and we will return with Madam soon.


we decided to give it a go, this is taken part way across


best of all though was spotting these catkins, which must mean we will get more days like this one right?


About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    I recognize this place! (I think), isn’t this where the parking meter didn’t work????

    Good choice! You can run whenever but quality spouse time is rare.

    Oh yes, catkins! Saw them a couple of weeks ago too and honestly, they give me hope of great days and hopefully, better weather to come!
