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

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
