Devon Floods

We took the train down to my hometown of Exeter on Friday night. Amid all the disruption we were surprised to find that our train departed Paddington exactly on time.

We had booked seats in the Entertainment carriage, complete with TVs in the backs of the seats, for no extra charge.

We arrived in Exeter at 10:30pm and were soon at my mum's house, with mugs of tea. 

On Saturday morning we looked out of the windows (my mum's house overlooks the River Exe) to see that the river had risen. Watching the news, it seemed that all trains to the South West were cancelled. We went for a walk to look at the river.

We trust that the Duck is still safe on its mooring in the Fens!

  1. Yes, it is!

    Perfectly safe!

    Jackie popped down this morning to check the lines and see if flood poles were needed.

    All is well.

    We'll have another look tomorrow and act accordingly!

    Don't worry, and have a lovely Christmas!
