On day three we decided to head south and visit Dartmouth on another one of the gorgeous sunny mornings we were blessed with. On the way, we passed a freshwater stream with big rocks and boulders to climb across. I could not resist the urge to have a scramble along the beautiful grey rocks and dip my feet in the cool clear water. Here, away from the hustle and bustle of work it felt is so beautiful, and this small little place was so full of beauty and happiness!
After our impromptu stop, we got to Dartmouth with the full summer sun smiling down on us.
Dartmouth is such an amazing historic town, there is so much to see and do, watch boat pass the gorgeous coloured houses over the river, visit the cobbled streets and pop into the shops, and check out the museum and castle. We mooched around the shops, I couldn’t resist the sales and got a new jumper even though it was one of the hottest days of the year!
We wandered around the cobbled streets looking for a coffee, and I spotted the No 8 Brassierie, a gorgeous cafe, with friendly staff and plenty of soya milk.
A mix of rustic brick walls, modern furnishings and calm purple, the place was a great little find for a quick coffee stop. Not only do they not charge extra for soya (I’m looking at you Nero!!) we got a vanilla latte & a cappuccino for £3! I was shocked! Where we live you can expect to pay £2.70 -£3.50 for one drink! We also got our favourite biscoff biscuits free with the coffee, for added yumminess.
After a good stroll around this pretty town, we headed on home for tea, stopping at a large Sainsbury’s where I found this new vegan pesto by Scala Italia:
I used to eat their pestos before I became vegan so I knew it would taste great. It’s got some tofu in, which makes it a bit more creamy than some other free from pestos I have bought before. Def will repurchase this.
We used up our left over Maple Bacon and Linda McCartney sausages to create a simple pesto pasta dish & side salad.
For pudding I ate a huge romantically themed fresh fruit salad with cheeky squirts of my Schlagfix whippy cream! I knew this was a genius idea to pack with me!
