Today we caught the 'cattle truck' to Topsham! ;-)
I say 'Cattle truck' as the FGW train from Paignton to Exmouth really is no better than that.
We were all packed into just two carriages and even the driver found it difficult to get back into the train once we reached Exeter St Davids (as the train then leaves the station in the same direction from whence it came..if that makes sense!)
The day could only get better ....
And it did!
This is Cally's lovely stall at the Topsham market .
Cally is at Topsham every fortnight ...and also here :
It was lovely to meet her and her hubby...who greeted Mr Snippets with that very name!
I think the people around us really thought we were of that surname!
Imagine that..Sally and Terry Snippets! LOL (Some things make me giggle!)
A fine array of Christmas goodies from a lovely Cally !
Naturally, one tries hard to make the day a little more tempting for one's other half..and so the next port of call was here, for lunch:
And a wander around Topsham afterwards, is always quite pleasant.
As we walked back to the station, this lovely Fig tree caught our eye ...there were still one or two figs on it.
And how lovely is this...
A fab trip... and I didn't feel the urge to stop off at Exeter on the return journey...there must be something wrong with me! ;-)
On Monday, weather permitting, I am off on a 'jolly' to another fave place which begins with the same two letters at Topsham!
I wonder where on earth that could be!!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
