Two days of Christmas festivities at Dartmouth seemed to go very well, helped by lovely weather. Dartmouth was busy and vibrant and the Royal Avenue Gardens was the centre for the market and lights switch on.
There were plenty of stalls selling all sorts of items. We were very tempted by one selling mulled cider and you could get a shot of brandy in it too...I thought it would be wonderful but perhaps far too alcoholic to continue taking photos and walking upright.

We had a lovely evening and great meal at Kendricks. I was not able to go to the candlelight procession on Saturday and in truth was a little disappointed at the Christmas lights. I thought they'd be all along the marina and through the trees, but sadly it was only in the gardens. So really it's not Dartmouth by candlelight, but Dartmouth by Christmas lights-it was still very pretty and I hope you agree.
I hope you have enjoyed this walk around picturesque Dartmouth with me and have been successful in your Christmas preparations so far.
Until next time
