A Stroll Around Salcombe In Devon
Day 2.9 - The Photographers Eye Road Trip
The day was nearly over on day two of my road trip. It had been a busy couple of days and I was just planning my return journey back to Plymouth when I remembered Salcombe was just over the hill!
Well it would be rude not to visit ;-)
Salcombe is a harbour town in the South Hams area of Devon, England. The picturesque costal town is popular with day trippers and holiday makers and gets very busy during the summer holidays. The town has a narrow main street full of shops selling everything from ice cream to pre-made picnics and the latest fashions. A short ferry trip across the estuary and you have access to beautiful beaches and walks through the countryside. I love Salcombe, in fact everybody loves Salcombe, especially the sailors, and I really must spend more time here. I would love to discover more about the community, it's traditions and the local people that live and work in the town, when us tourists have all gone home. All I need is a boat and a few weeks spare to just relax and enjoy the place. Maybe one day! For now my day dreaming will have to wait. The sun is getting lower in the sky and surprisingly for such a nice evening it looks like I have the town to myself, ideal for a quick stroll, a few photos and maybe an ice cream ;-)
Till next time, Scott.
Postcards From Salcombe
Before you go
So after eating a lovely ice cream, I started my journey back through South Hams to Plymouth and Mrs C's B&B. It was a beautiful evening and as I drove along the narrow country roads, I spotted a couple of cows in a field. Stopping the car in a nearby lane I walked back and took a few photos. As I did word must have got around as I was joined by the entire herd who walked over to say hello :-)
