Winters is clearly a favoured haunt of cyclists. We saw lots of bicycles and teh coffee shop had a sign advertising locks for loan, so you could chain your bike to their railings.

There was a farmers market, which is apparently a weekly event throughout the summer. Since we were at the start of our day, had no ice chest, and it was delightfully warm, we could not purchase anything. We shall go back, the locally raised lamb sounded especially appealing.
