burgh island

Thursday. Weather forecast awful – predicting wet all day after all night rain. Drove into Kingsbridge for great breakfast and newspapers at Pig Finca (after Moira had had to wade to Aveton Gifford car park to retrieve car!). Decided to drive to Burgh Island – with its art deco hotel right out of an Agatha Christie novel. The rain stopped, the sun came out and everything looked wonderful! Walked across causeway as the tide went out, climbed up to the ruined chapel, watched wild seas and graceful seagulls. Lunch at the Pilchard Inn on the island, sitting outside in the glorious sunshine – and reminding ourselves that it’s still February!

As you just might have guessed, we had a lovely relaxing time Ian (+Gail!). I've become an expert wood burning stove operator (great instructions!). Old Walls is absolutely ideal for chilling out. Many thanks to you both. x
