We took the car ferry to Dartmouth, we've visited the town before, so decided to head out. It's a nice, quite upmarket town - lots of nice looking properties with expensive boats moored up outside them.
We took the coast road, passed the other & in our opinion, much nicer - Blackpool & stopped briefly at Slapton Sands, which is where Exercise Tiger took place in 1944. The Sherman Tank is a memorial of the 946 American soldiers, who lost their lives in the exercise.
We then headed on down to Salcombe - as we'd never been before & loved it!
It's very much like Fowey, with lots of quaint alleyways, waterfront cottages & stunning views. We enjoyed exploring & look forward to returning.

It was so nice to see some new scenery & we'll be doing it again soon!

It would be fun to take a ferry! You two really get out in your area a lot. That's so fantastic. :)

Salcombe sounds lovely. I can't comment about Dartmouth, for as we spent several hours there recently, it was raining and we HAD to stay in the pub! can you believe that :-D
