We decided today to have a break from this, and one of us remembered a lovely walk we had seen in Devon Life magazine. This was at Budleigh Salterton in Devon, (where we had never been before), so we got out instructions for the walk and set off. There was a wonderful light over the sea when we arrived and as usual I had to stop to take some photos.
The planned walk was a stroll around the Otter estuary in a loop and as we walked along we enjoyed the views across the estuary.
When we reached a bridge, I spied a sign to a farm shop, so we just had to take a detour and look what we found!
|I love alpacas, their colours matched the chickens!|
The farm shop was in a beautiful setting and we didn't leave there empty handed! We retraced our steps and walked on the other side of the estuary. When we came to the end of headland we discovered we had come the wrong way as there was no way we could cross over the water without rock climbing or swimming - neither of which either of us excel in!
|To far down!!|
We decided instead to stop for an impromptu picnic - first one of the year ( it was just as well we had been to the farm shop) and admire the view instead before retracing our steps!
|Good local food from Devon|
|There were wonderful reflections in the water of the walkers.|
We both agreed it was a good mistake to have made and the good news is that we got back to the car with a minute to spare and still have the rest of the walk to do another time!
|Not another walk please !|
Do you often get lost on walks too, or is it just me! I tell my OH and children it's always an adventure when they come out with me!
Have a good weekend and hope you don't take any wrong paths too!
