[Tuesday 22nd December]
Had the whole day in Dartmouth, with no particular agenda, which turned out to be rather nice. After a late and lazy breakfast, the four of us went out to do a spot of shopping in Dartmouth in the morning. We then went back to the flat for lunch, but I decided I was determined to have a bag of chips out on the quayside, so I did just that. Amazingly (considering the plight of the rest of country weather-wise this week) it was sunny and not particularly cold in Dartmouth - so much so that eating outdoors was actually quite pleasant (albeit with a thick coat and a scarf of course!).

Later on in the afternoon, I decided I rather fancied hopping over to Kingswear on the passenger ferry for no particular reason other than it's just nice to be on a boat. Whilst in Kingswear, I poked my nose in at the Steam Packet Inn - the only one of the three pubs in Kingswear that we hadn't quite made it to on our visit in the summer. So that was rather nice.

Back in Dartmouth in the evening we went out for dinner at a restaurant called Sails, situated fittingly above Dartmouth Yacht Club. Surprisingly the vegetarian option wasn't actually that bad - for my main course I had a kind of mushroom stroganoff which was rich and quite satisfying.

I rounded off the evening - and my short stay in Dartmouth - with one last pint in the wonderful Cherub. Lovely.
