Dawlish

Dawlish is just two miles from where we are staying and a quick bus ride took us to the town centre where there was a seasonal flavour to the street market that lined the main road through the town.

We took a walk to the beach and had a quick look at the very cold and windswept vista, we turned around and walked back into the town to look at what was on offer.

To be fair it was a cold miserable day and I was not surprised to see most of Dawlish closed, well it looked that way slightly worn and unloved, I am sure in the summer this will be as pleasant a resort as any.

The river that the town is built along obviously floods as most of the buildings had flood prevention in place, not sure if that is for events to come or for what had been. The river is home to lots of wildlife and it was quite nice to see the black swans defending their territory from the intruding larger white swans. Geese and ducks were everywhere you just need to watch where you step!

We didn’t stay too long and back on the bus home to the campsite and a warm van, the rugby will be on soon, bliss!
