A wander to the coast, and a bit of operetta

Today we decided, as the weather was glorious, to have a walk. We decided to follow roughly a South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty walk across from Greenway to Churston, and then back again through the close village of Galmpton. The scenery was stunning and we had a lovely walk.

It was particularly great to see the coastline from the ABC murders at Churston Point where victim C was found, and there are loads of buzzards flying around here. Of course, they were missed by most even though they were gliding low and screeching.

When we got back to Greenway, we got in the car and went to another National Trust property nearby Coleton Fishacre (http://tinyurl.com/coleton). This is a superb art deco house (inside that is, outside fits the landscape beautifully) and gardens right on the south near Kingswear and is a house built by the D’Oyly Carte family. The house itself is wonderfully art deco inside and the gardens on the steep slope towards the sea are stunning. With it being National Trust, we also had a fantastic cream tea!
