Day Out

We had one of our Dartmoor picnic days yesterday, basically we make up a packed lunch and just drive off, picking a start point and then taking a random choice at each road junction, just to see where we will end up. On the way out we spotted a rather magnificent rainbow, I had to stop the car and get some pictures.

Wow! That set the day up nicely. 

After a meandering drive over the moor and through some stunning countryside we ended up at Dartmeet. The day had turned a bit showery with a lot of scudding cloud and it went from bright to dark very quickly.

After that we drove to Postbridge,

and on toward Moretonhampstead, stopping for our lunch in a showery layby on the moor.

I attracted the attention of several Crows whilst eating, although they may have been more interested in the crumbs than me personally!

On the way home we popped into a local butchers for supplies and I ended up with a rack of ribs for £3.99. I'm thinking overnight soak in home-made BBQ sauce then slow baked with a few potato wedges and salad.

On taking the dog for a walk I found more daffodils ready to flower.

All in all a very nice day, a bit of an antidote to the full-on hustle of last week.
