Opening the Lodge

Last weekend we went down to Devon to open the lodge after the winter break. Fortunately this year we did not suffer any frost damage. On the way down we called in to see my cousin Mary whom we had not seen for a couple of years. She was in fine form and we took her out for lunch, the restaurant was by the sea but thanks to the fog we could not see it!

Whilst we were down in Devon we went for a walk on the moors to Wistman's Wood. This is a magical place of stunted oak trees and lichen covered rocks. It is reputed to be the home of the large red-eyed black dogs that roam Dartmoor attacking unwary travellers - luckily for us they were not at home!

We also went into Exeter, Julia looked at the new season's fashions.

Then we went for a walk along the Exe.
