I phoned hubby this morning
to see if the fort was still standing
and he commiserated with me about the weather...
he had seen an earlier forecast actually from Torquay. The forecaster was standing in torrential rain and the sea coming over the wall!!
I blithely told him the sun was shining and we were going out
To which he suspiciously replied,"where are you...you're obviously not in Torquay"
I tried to take a picture of the waves from the distance as we were not allowed along the sea road.
Later we travelled along it.
There was sand and seaweed everywhere.
The water had flooded the gardens opposite...to the delight of the seagulls and ducks!
This afternoon, despite the rain, we decided to go to Cockington.
My sister used to live near
and we would go whenever I visited.
There were some delightful thatched cottages in the village.
Anyone for tea in the rain?
Table arrangement for those that appreciate prettily arranged tables
The rose garden at Cockington Hall must be beautiful in the Summer
I'd love to visit when they are blooming!
I loved the church through the trees
it's been a good visit even though the weather hasn't always been good.
I do hope that I haven't bored you with too many photos!!
