Absence of hats

Until recently, I owned two waterproof hats.  This was a good thing, as I definitely have a waterproof hat kind of life. I don't know what happened to one of the hats, but I do know that my Drizabone hat took a liking to Iceland and decided to stay there.

Today I went to Tavistock to buy a new hat.  The Pannier market waterproof clothing stall had nothing waterproof in my size.  The farm supply shop, ditto.  The hiking shop had a £25 folding waterproof hat that fit, but that I didn't like. Devon Hatters was closed.

I really would have thought that if there was one item you could reliably buy in a town on the edge of Dartmoor with astonishingly high average rainfall, it would be a waterproof hat.  I think Tavistock is still in 'late summer' mode...
