First we thought we’d be leaving the marina at the beginning of April, but after COVID, that idea was pushed to mid-May. Well, while day sails were allowed, it wasn’t until July 4th that cruising became permitted again and we were let out of lockdown to begin our season.
As we’re released from our marina, we wanted to keep close and see all the sights of the Plymouth area that had been off limits to us as cruisers for the past few months. Heading up the Tamar River, we branched off into the Lynher River where we found a nice secure spot just before Dandy Hole to drop our anchor.
And although there is a lot to see by boat and by dinghy, before we could get too far away from Plymouth, we had our friend Alasdair (@bongo_sails) drive us into Dartmoor National Park for a hike around the reservoir. It was the perfect summer day in England, and walking through some of these trails, we could have sworn we were in a story book.
We hope you enjoy!
Much love from England!
