Day 2, March 11th 2008.
The original plan was to visit Holcombe and explore this hilltop village, however the high winds and torrential rain made this not so appealing, and we ventured to the Dawlish Sea Front while pondering the next move.
The waves were quite strong and coming up high on the wall, taking a few passers by a little by surprise, 2 were almost washed off the wall right on that very corner. The seagull was not too concerned however.
This one took all of us by surprise, and came a little close, but not enough to get wet however.
We moved a bit further along, and slightly further away from the edge. I should point out that these shots were taken with an certain amount of zoom, and so I was not as close as it appears from the pictures.
Pondering complete, we made our way to the station, the high footbridge provide a good photo op…
We then awaited the South West Trains Service to Paignton, provided by the 3 car Class 159 no 159108. This would take us just one stop to Teignmouth.
Love the photos and wish I could do that long ‘portrait’? shot!
