I was sat in The Swan, by the window, eating lunch with my mother and watching traffic on the A38.
Just a note on the Swan's cuisine: they have pretensions - food was served on rectangular wooden 'plates' - but the food itself was bland. The apple and apricot crumble was lukewarm and light on apricots. I guess another pub crossed off the list.
Back to the A38. It had a lot of white cars: BMWs, VWs mostly. I never see white cars, and now it's every other car. Did something happen over Easter?
