Here's my minder....aka Mr S in his sun hat'!
We've been to Paignton on the train, along with swarms of grockles... and swarms of flying ants!
I don't know which was worse!! ;-)
There was a method in my madness though.
About two weeks ago, I was asked if I would do a vintage stall at the Torbay Carnival Fair on Paignton Green.
It was all 'last minute' arrangements but, being game for most things, I initially said, 'Yes!'
However, having then asked a few questions, I was then told it was 'No tables provided'. Bring your own.
Thus, I decided not to get involved with it.
Being curious people, we thought we would go along and take a look to see if it had materialised.
As far as we could see, it hadn't... although there was a craft tent but nothing 'vintage' in it.
We walked along the beach to Preston where there are rows and rows of beach huts.
We walked around the fantastic display of vintage cars, which took up a vast area of Paignton Green.
'How to cure all your ills. Just sit still.'
There were too many people in the way but I managed to snap this beauty...a Buzzard.
We walked around to the harbour and noticed some lovely floral displays.
There was a little plaque saying 'Smile' in one of the pots...so I did!
This is the view across Torbay, with the famous Thatcher Rock in the distance and the not so famous Orestone Rock on the right.
Sunday lunch here...
I've never eaten here before, never set foot in the place... but wow..it was lovely...the best Sunday roast I've had in a very long time...excellent service from very friendly people.
We're going back! I highly recommend it.
Paignton has its share of interesting buildings..the Gentlemen's club...
Pretty thatched residences...
Sit on one and you can 'peer' out to sea! ;-) (Groan!)
