MOORS TO SEA RUN

SUNDAY 20TH May 2012

 

 

As it was to be an early start on the Sunday morning we decided to book into a Travel Lodge on the Saturday meeting up with Louise and Tim (who were also in the same hotel) for a very pleasant evening.  We had a short run back up the motorway on the Sunday morning to Jct 27 where the Exeter Club had commandeered Costa Coffee for the check in and where we met up with Steve, Marion, Rob and Julia who had stayed  overnight at a small country pub.  After coffee and bacon butties, we prepared our cars for the 100 mile run.  We decided that as there were only four member’s cars we would travel in convoy, but immediately lost Tim and Louise, who we found out later had stopped for petrol, and Julia and Rob had problems deciding which junction they should exit on the roundabout. 

 

 

 

The Exeter Club had organised several games on the trip, one of which was testing your ‘sniffer’ on four liquids, just before the cattle grid onto Exmoor.   We opted not to take part as there was a long queue. Tim and Louise were spotted several cars back so Julia informed them of our intention and the four cars pulled out of the queue to continue the trip in convoy. 

 

 

It was a lovely run over Exmoor through pretty villages and a stop at Lynton and Lynmouth.  Steve, who was squadron leader flying the flag for Britain,  led us into a car park in Lynton where we all alighted and took the funicular railway into Lynmouth.  After a very refreshing drink some of us had icecreams and others chips/pies perched on the wall overlooking Lynmouth harbour. 

We had sensibly bought return tickets for the funicular railway as none of us were brave enough to walk back to the car park. 

At what we thought was the end of the run we were treated to a very morish Devon cream tea, provided by the local ladies.  There was an extra bit however to the run which the organizer said was probably the best of the scenery, but as this took you back to where the run started we decided to head for home traveling with Tim and Louise until the motorway, but Steve, Marion, Rob and Julia had another night in Devon and made their way back via the pretty route. 

 

I think we all agreed that it was one of the best runs we had been on given the variation in scenery.
