Swim before school
I had an hour or two before school pickup and went with Ellie to explore the river Teign, where it comes off the Moor and proceeds, rather unpromisingly, through the clay pits towards Newton Abbot and out to sea. We parked at Chudleigh Knighton and walked under the noisy A38 bridge, following the river south. We were greeted with a most pleasant and bucoloic scene. Meadows and river, with swimmable bits and beaches and even some rope swings along the way.
