As planned we started our "Agatha Christie" tour ! Torquay is very proud of its most famous inhabitant;
Unfortunately the day was grey and rather cold, but nevertheless we managed to see a few things.

The church were she got married and the park she loved.

Our guide was a gentlemen of a certain age who explained how she lived here, got married etc etc, but it started to rain so much that we decided to return to the hotel instead of catching a cold ! Only Dominique bravely made the whole tour. Here we are well covered, but were soaked when we arrived at the Hotel, where btw Agatha had spend her honeymoon. !

We spent the afternoon in the cozy lounge of the Hotel with a beautiful view on the sea.

It continued raining the whole afternoon, so we went to the indoor swimming pool and had a nice time there. Finally we have enjoyed this quiet day because we were still a little tired from the long trip the day before.

After a very nice supper with 3 courses we went to bed, while another school celebrated the proms ! They all looked so nice in their long dresses and suits.

Hi Gattina - sorry about the rain - I hope you get some dry weather in Cornwall ...?!

Glad you were able to see some of the Agatha Christie area - did you see the caves?

Cheers Hilary
