The Templer Way…on Mother’s Day

Yesterday I did one of the thirty things I have most been looking forward to – The Templer Way.

The Templer Way is an 18 mile walk from Haytor on Dartmoor that follows the old tramway and canal that used to transport granite from the moors down to Teignmouth.  (That means it’s all flat or downhill – hurrah!).  Although I didn’t spend Mother’s Day with my babies, I did spend it with my Mum, so I don’t feel too bad!

It was SO misty and cold.  Despite being stood within metres of Haytor we didn’t actually see it at all!

Here we are at the beginning of the old tramline.

This is walking through Yarner Woods, probably my favourite bit of the walk.  Super Carol pulled out a surprise bottle of rose cava at our Stover pit stop, a definite highlight!

Some interesting looking fungus along the Stover canal.

Saying goodbye to some of the more conscientious Mums at Newton Abbot!!

We didn’t think the tide was going to be in our favour, and it was a close call, but we made it along the beach from Newton Abbot to Shaldon!  We had a nice stop en route at Coombe Cellars.

What a lovely Mother’s Day!
