Cali has been to Parke, Haytor and Knightshayes

We've had a couple of day trips this weekend to get used to driving Cali and enjoy her as a day vehicle.  It also gave us a chance to see what we need before our first camping trip next weekend.

Yesterday we visited Parke, a National Trust parkland near Bovey Tracy, with lovely river walks. There was quite a lot of parking (free for NT members) and it was great to have Cali as a walking base and return to pop the kettle on for a cup of tea.  After lunch we decided to drive over Dartmoor and went to Haytor.

The weather was fabulous and we walked up to the rock and took this photograph to show Cali on the car park.  There are several car parks along the road with good access - although there is a lot of discussion whether these should now become 'pay and display' car parks.

Today we've visited Knightshayes, a National Trust house, gardens and parkland near Tiverton. There was lots of parking (free for NT members). Unfortunately I've hurt my back so couldn't do too much walking in the woods, but we did have a lovely stroll around the gardens.
