kingswear

arrival at kingswear 

dartmouth

a good view of dartmouth from the kingswear ferry

van

this 'rascal' van seemed tiny and there was someone in it having a very animated phone conversation

pies

after having a pint of shingle bay at the cherub we went to piestro to have a nice meal

view

after lunch i went for a stroll up the hill next to the fort, and climbed various very narrow sets of steps between the old houses - there was one very contrasting 'ultra modern' house near the top with a good view of the estuary

ferry

now back in kingswear disembarking the ferry

posh car

there was a very expensive looking car parked next to the quay at kingswear

waiting

waiting for the train at kingswear - trying a copy a photo that was taken in the exact same spot 30 years ago

santa

a reindeer - going back on one of the 'regular' carriages rather than the pullman - the seats were a lot more comfortable
