February is already upon us and the calendar picture for February is Teignmouth Pier.
Deciding to use public transport (the train) to get to Teignmouth we set off for Westbury Station to catch one of the new GWR Class 800 IEP trains to Exeter St Davids, then change on to a service to Teignmouth which travels along the Dawlish Sea wall, the sea was calm so no waves crashing over the train.
Arriving we explored the high Street of Teignmouth stopping for a coffee and sausage roll before heading for the Pier and the all important arcades, winning £15 on the slots we set off to celebrate with a cheeky Thatchers Gold and yes only a orange juice for Lily.
It was time to find our hotel for the night which was the other side of the River Teign in Shaldon , we caught the small ferry across (£1.60 adults ,£0.60p children).
Checking into Potters Mooring Guest House Hotel (Robert and Linda Down), what a great hotel friendly and clean and a great breakfast i can really recommend this place, and best of all their next door Neighbours The London Inn have an excellent Menu for the weary traveller, and don’t forget to ask for the cork animals hopefully they will have a selection.
All in all we had a great 2 days away, visiting the Shaldon Zoo , Shaldon Smugglers Cave/tunnel, Teign ferry ,Teignmouth Pier and of course weatherspoons there is plenty to do and explore.
March will see a trip to Cape Cornwall……….
