Jude was unwell today, but John arrived in time for a pre-ride coffee before we set off at 10.45 for our ride through Staverton and Fishacre Barton to Ipplepen. Jude, who is a co-op member and proud of it, welcomed the opportunity to look into the Ipplepen branch, which turned out to be a bit smaller than Buckfastleigh. We bought some blueberries and then proceeded to our planned destination, Fermoys Garden Centre, for 12:25.
We were quite hungry so two of us bought the medium-sized vegetarian nut roast dinner in the café for £7.95 which turned out to be surprisingly good. John enjoyed toasted sandwiches, and we are pleased to report that the service was much faster than we experienced on our last visit.
After a browse around the many Christmas treats on sale in the shop area, we headed home via Two Mile Oak and Denbury.
