The English Riviera

Today we woke up and after breakfast at home, headed out about 10am. Einstein was left home with a puppy sitter. We had a 3 hour drive into Torquay. It’s on the southern coast and considered the European Riviera.

We are staying at a quaint little B&B just off of the main road. We have two rooms and a shared bath. The bath is off of the main bedroom so I have to sneak thru Greg and Karens room if I have to use the potty in the night, lol.

We set out right away to walk around town. It’s a great little harbor town with shops and restaurants.

We just walked around for a few hours in and out of shops, rating lunch in the mean time. We stopped and got ice cream and coffee… searching the beach for crabs. We met a family on holiday, from Colorado, who’s little boy had no problem with finding and holding a crab for us to photograph.

After exploring, we came back to the B&B and rested for about an hour before heading back out. We headed to another beach looking for dolphins (recommended by the B&B owner) but didn’t see any. We decided on pizza for dinner and now back at the B&B for Star Trek and bed.
