. . . . . . they say "you can see forever".
On our last but one day in Devon, another spectacular sunrise. Later the sun
shone brightly and it warmed up considerably compared to the damp, often
blustery, days over Christmas.
Sunsets may be beautiful but sunrises can be even more gorgeous.
You will miss them if you don't rise early. . . . . . .or live in the wrong place,
which I obviously do as we never see anything such as this from our cottage
in the cul-de-sac surrounded by large trees!
Early morning then brought seabirds and these huge pigeons.
Large flocks took turns wheeling around the rooftops as we stood out on the
balcony enjoying the sunshine.
Soon the low tide brought dog walkers, joggers and strollers to the the beach.
This is Abbey Sands, the safest beach for children to paddle and learn to swim.
It would have been lovely if every day of our six in Torquay had been sunny and
warm like this one.
Next time we visit I think it will be either Spring, Summer or Autumn when we can
take advantage of the longer, milder days as we did in 2015 when we visited in June.
However, it was lovely to see family and friends in England, and join in the holiday
festivities of Portugal, Spain, and Morocco whilst cruising on Cunard's beautifully
decorated Queen Victoria. On board we enjoyed the company of several new
friends whom we really hope to meet up with again somewhere, someday.
The joys of travel are many.
