    ... So I was a bit shocked and regretful when I got stiffed 50 at the toll booth for a 10k 15 minute journey through a damp boring black hole. I suppose it saved me quite a few miles and a fair bit of time but it's over the pass next time!

    ... that we don't have the portable ones for disabled/baby changing. I thought the placement of the other others was strange. Interesting food stands. I had the carvery (buffet) at the Mill on the Exe. There were many vegetables and yummy Yorkshire pudding. What a gorgeous setting.
