Before our supper we could again admire another group of young people, celebrating their prom, who were so elegantly dressed ! One had chosen the gothic which looked a bit strange !
The next day we went to Totness where we took a boat which took us along the scenic River Dart to
Dartmouth, The landscape was so peaceful and beautiful. Meanwhile the rain had stopped and we could sit on the upper deck.
From far we saw Agatha Christie's summer a house, lots of pastel colored houses and a very old fisher house.
We arrived in Dartmouth where we had free time and walked through very pretty town. Nicole and I noticed the difference between the French coast just on the opposite side where everything looked so neglected, while here it seemed that they had painted the whole town just yesterday. The parks too were so well kept !
We had a jacket potato in a little restaurant, for Nicole it was the first time, she had never eaten one and decided that from now on she wouldn't eat anything else. Breakfast and supper we have in our hotel.
After Dartmouth we crossed the river in a ferry and took the old steam train to Paington. It really was a very romantic trip and we enjoyed it very much. The whistle of the train brought back childhood memories !
We returned to Torquay and spent the rest of the day in our hotel relaxing.
The battery of my mouse has given up its soul and I had to use the thing in the computer. It made me mad, I had never used it but finally I managed, with a lot of @&"# !
