Plymouth to Teignmouth. Wettest day of the year so far.
Friday 29th January fresh to strong W
heavy rain or thick drizzle
I don't know why but a really enjoyable cycling day. The weather is appalling; heavy rain or thick drizzle and a strong westerly wind just to make sure I am soaked. There are no views of the beautiful hilly Devon landscape as it is all lost in the cloud and mist yet I really enjoyed the day. The only wildlife of note was, sadly a dead dunnock beside a cycle path.
I reached Totnes, then Newton Abbott and finally Teignmouth where the Potter's More Hotel had an attic room with a view over to the sea.
Showered, rehydrated and relaxed.
