Staycation Devon - Devon bit over!

And now we are in Dorset.

Yesterday we cleaned up and left the Garden House in Brixham for the last time. Destination East Fleet Camping near Weymouth. It was just before 9.30am.

After failing to fill the tank the night before when the pump kept clicking off we again called in to the Sainsbury's in Paignton. This time the tank was filled. Still loads of clicks!!!

Traffic was quite heavy as we came east. On the approach to Honiton the A30 was queued back about 3 miles to get off onto the A35. Cause? Roadworks. Or rather completed roadworks but yet another jobsworth sitting in his van. The hole that had been dug very neatly covered in fresh tarmac. Still, he was enjoying his sandwich. Disruption for miles around. Not his problem.....

So by the time I pulled off into a roadside Starbucks we had been going around 2 hours. 

According to Google we were still about 90 minutes away from the site. It was mostly freely running from there. The A35 is not that bad and does have short sections of extra lanes and even dual carriageways every so often to allow people to pass slower vehicles. Usually us. 

It was about 1pm when we arrived and checked in. We have pitch 181. Not far from the loos etc.


Lunch was sourced in the shop. The shop is very large and mostly taken over with camping stuff and only a little food. Some rolls and cheese 🧀 sufficed. The rest tomorrow.


Once settled in we had a walk to have a look at the Fleet Lagoon. The tide was out and it was mainly shingle and mud.

What a difference a few hours makes when we had another walk. It was quite chilly with the breeze coming off the sea. The tide was in.


Dinner was microwavable beef stew with dumplings. At some stage we have to use the oven and the gas hob!

All washed down with local cider.
