The English Riviera*


A week ago today Mrs Weir and I (along with a more senior interloper) had just returned from a break in the South West, to be specific the handsome South Devon town of Dartmouth.

Unlike our last trip to the area we remained free of any driving based trauma as most of our journeys during the week took place via the Dartmouth Steam Railway and a variety of ferries travelling along and across the River Dart.

Seems an age ago already.

[I’ve started taking somewhat random audio recordings again, feels more satisfying than hundreds of low quality snaps. Not to say that the recordings are anything more than rudimentary but still. May investigate further how to do low cost audio on the iPhone without the intrusive interruption of wind-noise – any thoughts much appreciated.]

The Dartmouth Steam Railway, on the way to Paignton.

Agatha Christie sounding a little fierce at Greenway, her holiday home for many years.

Walking through the leaves at Dartington Hall (we arrived in unseasonably warm weather but by the end of the week Autumn was well and truly with us).

Back at Greenway, where they had a typewriter of dubious origin (albeit not misrepresented with any signage).

Arriving in Paignton on the Dartmouth Steam Railway.

The River Dart making it’s way into Bayard’s Cove.

*Well just South of the English Riviera but close enough eh?
