For our final full day in the morning we moseyed around some antique shops for a while, which we quite enjoyed, not having done so for quite a while. OF was with us, of course.

Yes, some sweets were bought, mine being chocolate covered liquorice bullets. I should have read the detail as they were raspberry flavoured and I did not like them at all. Still in the car glove box. R will eat them.
