Friday 11th September
We both got up early today and after taking suki for a quick walk round the block we went off to Torquay for the day. Meanwhile window cleaner came and manjira delivery arrived. Parked in marina car park (£8 for the day) and went to cafe by harbour for breakfast. Had to sit outside because of suki and it was a bit cold and windy. Walked along sea front to Cockington turn, then 3/4 mike through water meadows to Cockington village. Warmed up a lot and sun eventually came through. Rest of the day warm and sunny. Had lovely walk around the village and craft shops in country park. Then shared cream tea before walking back. Tide out so we were able to walk along the promenade on the way back. Wandered round the shops in Torquay then had a ice cream and sat by the harbour for a while. Drove to Preston Sands and walked in to Paignton about 4 pm. Had half a lager and a packet of crisps each sitting in the sun then did the shops. Got back to car about 6 and drove to Grossington Sands just to have a look. Had a little drive round then went home. Got into pyjamas and watched two episodes of Honourable Woman with red wine and snack supper. Suki absolutely whacked! Me too come to that. Left my phone and iPad at home so couldn't take any photos.
