    Beggars

    Exeter seems to attract a lot of people who can only be described as beggars or layabouts. Many of these can be seen in the high street, asking for money for "a cup of tea" or for "food for my dog"...I don't think it's really any different than any other major city in the UK, just that it can become quite annoying, and some have been known to be abusive or threatening...

    Exeter Prison.

    If you get into any serious trouble this is where you could end up Exeter Prison.LOL.The crime rate for Exeter is quite low, but like any other town you do get the odd bit of trouble,eg drunks at the weekend in the city centre.

    Stiletto Heels At St Davids Station!

    It Was Amusing!

    If arriving at St Davids railway station whilst wearing high heels beware of the drainage runnel that runs in front of the entrance.

    Unfortunately I wasn't quite fast enough with the camera to catch the whole episode (too busy laughing!) but the woman featured managed to get her boot heel caught in the grid over the drain. She attempted to just pull her booted foot free but must have reckoned that she was more likely to leave the heel behind than to free the boot intact.

    So it was off with the boot and a gently levered exsertion!

    What? No Booze!!

    Cappucino and WATER with Lunch!

    There are several excellent restaurants on Cathedral Yard here in Exeter overlooking the magnificent Gothic Cathedral and its attendant Green. During the summer most of these have outside tables which are understandably popular especially for a light lunch and to sit and watch the world go by (and especially the pretty girls!).

    However be warned that a local bylaw prohibits the drinking of alcohol on Cathedral Yard (and the Green) and so the restaurants are not allowed to serve booze, even with meals, at their outside tables.

    HA! Even I can go without a drink for the course of a leisurely lunchtime and the Well House pub is here too for that post-prandial beer!

    Warning...........

    The council considers cobbles stones to be dangerous, so be warned.

    Alternatively, this may just be one more indication of the over-litigious society we now live in.
