We start our day by thanking our host at the Otter Inn, before heading off for Exeter. Our plan is to do the ‘park and ride’ into Exeter but when we arrive at the carpark it has a height barrier, which defeats the purpose so it would seem. We drive up an adjoining street, the first business a tile shop has a big carpark. I walk in an ask if we can park there and he thanks us for asking and says ‘no problem’ and shows us the shortcut back to the park and ride. He makes some remark about cricket which I respond without a profanity.
Enough Cathedral for one day we wander around the main square and shopping precinct to the Royal Albert Memorial Museum. We have a coffee and spend an hour going through the exhibits.
Time to hit the road again and we head west out of Exeter and start the climb into the Dartmoor National Park and onto the high moors.
