The spectacular sunrise from the balcony on our first morning in Torquay yesterday.
The sky was on fire for several minutes, turning the harbour and bay waters many
shades of pink and mauve.
Torquay Harbour looking across to Brixham.
Later, one tiny passenger ferry arrived from Brixham, the little fishing port across
the bay, and then the blustery day began. Winds strong enough to knock one over,
then rain. . . . . . but hard to use an umbrella without flying away Mary Poppins style!
Yes, English weather can be wild and wet especially here along the coast.
This lovely view is still here this morning, again with brilliant painted skies,
screaming sea gulls, and I see the little ferry heading over from Brixham.
Much calmer weather is forecast for today but it will be turning colder.
The shoppers will be making that last run on the shops.
This evening Christmas Eve parties will be in full swing.
Hopefully I can participate despite catching a miserable cold. . . .
most likely from the ship where several people were hacking
during the cruise.
Hope your Christmas plans all work out and that you and your
loved ones have a wonderful time.
From beautiful Devon, a very Happy Christmas.
