Dutch Style Buildings by the Cathedral
This may be the Old Courthouse.
My first objective has been achieved, i.e., to reach Exmouth and Starcross. If I can work the boat further to the SW, that will be a bonus. This morning there is hardly any wind and the sun is making it scorching hot. For the first time during the cruise I have had to remove my shirt to remain cool. There is very little I need in way off provisions, but I took the dinghy ashore this morning so that I could do a little shopping for food at the Starcross Spar. I also had an interesting episode while fetching drinking water from the Starcross Fishing and Cruising Club’s slipway. Initially, I drew the dinghy up on the mud, but when I stepped into it my boots nearly disappeared in the ooze; with difficulty I managed to drag the dinghy to a sort of pebbly slip.
My aim today is to do what comes naturally; have a snooze, admire the scenery, watch the comings and goings of boats, and work out what next to do. The summer has come, and I’m really enjoying the holiday. I have no worries, no anxieties and I have time to relax, read, listen to the radio, or play with the computer. In modern jargon, I’m chilling out.
I’ll leave you with a few more photos I took when I was at Exeter yesterday.
