Weather breaking records in September. Winter tends to be too long and dark, make the most of the weather and head for the beach. . Seems as if the good weather is going to last into October, at least for the first few days..
The beach we headed for yesterday morning was Bigbury Bay, across the sand is Burgh Island.
When the tide is in it covers the cause way, the only way back and forth to the Island is then by a large sea tractor.
Burgh Island is famous for it's Art Deco Hotel. Visited by such people as Noel Coward, Edward and Mrs Simpson, Agatha Christie, the Beatles, Winston Churchill and Eisenhower.
It still stands as it did back in the 30's. I haven't been inside the hotel, but I know someone who has. They say that inside all the fixtures and fittings are still the original 1930 ones. The mirrors are starting to tell their age. Maybe that's only to be expected considering where the Hotel stands and surrounded by water twice a day.
Very impressive gates.
It's an easy walk across the sand when the tide is out.
If you visit the Island make sure to avoid a rather large hole on the cliff top. It's one that Freya decided to leave behind as a memento of her visit. She brought some of the earth home in her paws. Just like to warn everyone in case the rabbits get the blame for it.
In the distance is Wembury, the beach we went to last weekend.There can't be a better way to while away an afternoon than watching the world go by from this spot on a beautiful day. Plymouth is slightly further down the coast.
You never know who will pass, you might want to double click on the photo to see the dog on the surf board.
Not this one, she was too busy digging,
meeting new friends.
On the whole, accosting anyone who would make a fuss of her.
Mostly it was a digging
and paddling day.
Where ever you are over the next few days, make the most of the great weather.
As usual you can catch up with Freya over on THE CAT FLAP CAVALIER
