Ron travelled to Topsham on Thursday evening and Dee followed on Friday. We were staying with Ron's friend Chris (that makes 10 beds since Ron arrived in the UK....) in nearby Ebford and on Saturday morning we made our way into Topsham for a famous Route 2 breakfast. Ron reckoned this was the BEST breakfast anywhere and Dee had to agree. A long, leisurely walk around Topsham went someway to walking off the calories but we did have to visit the cheese shop before returning to Chris' house.....oh, and stop off at Dart's Farm for tea (and cake).....well, it was 4pm by this time!
Dinner was at the famous Denley's and 10 of us sat down to eat one of the best curries ever: Ron and Dee, Chris and Marg, Ian and Gilly, Peter and Maureen and Ray and Ali, the latter two not Topsham residents but friends that Ron had made during the trip to Las Palmas for the start of the ARC last November (not to mention the partying in St Lucia once they all arrived!).
Chris had arranged for Ian, Gilly, Peter and Maureen to join us for lunch on Sunday so the morning was taken up with veg prep as well as a lovely walk. Chris and Marg put on a fabulous roast pork lunch with all the trimmings followed by not one, not two but three desserts brought by the guests. Ron and Dee headed off into Topsham after lunch so Ron could show Dee just how lovely the river looks when it's sunny and after a quick visit to another of Ron's friends called Lori, we headed off back to Hamble.
Sorry there aren't any pictures.........it always helps to pack the camera!
