Travel Timehop #9 – Dartmouth

I love flicking through our holiday photo albums and in 2015 I am choosing a favourite snap to share here on the blog each week.
So far I’ve shared pictures from foreign holidays and breaks closer to home spanning the past 10 years. This week’s Travel Timehop gem comes from the not so distant past and a UK getaway in a location close to our hearts.

When are we time-hopping to?

It’s a small hip, skip and jump back to 2013 – the year Tin Box Tot was born and we spent our first summer holiday away in Tin Box.

Where in the world?

We had pitched our caravan in Devon and were enjoying a visit to Dartmouth, which is a special place for Mr Tin Box and I as it is where we got engaged. The legend goes that Mr TB was coming to the end of a stint of training at Britannia Royal Naval College (BRNC) and decided to pop the question following his passing out parade.

The town itself is a quintessential small English port. It has so much character and, as you would expect, is a magnet for tourists in the summer months.

We love browsing the independent shops and, back in the days before TBT, enjoying meals in its many lovely restaurants. There’s also a fantastic selection of B&Bs and hotels that cater to the families of students at BRNC all year round, as well as tourists in the summer.

Timehop moment

This week’s picture was taken during a walk up the Dart Valley and River Dart. TBT was hitching a ride in the baby carrier on Mr TB’s back and Tin Box Dog was sniffing about just out of shot. You can see the River Dart stretching away behind us.

After this picture was taken we continued up river, past Agatha Christie’s holiday home Greenway, and on to Dittisham where we crossed the river and had lunch. There’s more about what we got up to  in my post about our first summer holiday in Tin Box.
