Left Dawlish, stopped in Totnes

Left Dawlish this morning and stopped off at Totnes, on the river Dart. I saw a comment online describing it as quirky. .. The “Welcome to Totnes” sign as you enter town has the usual “Twinned with..” And a slightly different “Twinned with Area 51, Nevada”. Oh dear. 
Its claims to be an artsy community are certainly taken very seriously by the population.

Totnes is very laid back; an almost total absence of retail chains, lots of coffee shops & cafes selling all manner of vegetarian & vegan food, holistic medicines, and charity shops all blend together in the narrow high street. There were tie dye t-shirts, Tibetan beanie hats, kaftans, and one somewhat out of place army surplus store.

Away from the high street the river bank looks a lovely place to relax
