DEVONS COAST.

One day early last week Sue and I decided because it was such a nice day that we just had to get out for a while. The night before we had a heavy frost but the sun had warmed the air a little. We jumped into the car and just drove with no idea where we were going. Off toward Newton Abott we headed then turned across Shaldon Bridge heading on the Coast Rd. The views along this road are in some places brilliant. We stopped at the Labrador Bay Car park, overlooking the sea and got an Ice Cream (naughty). Back in the car we headed toward Torquay, stopping here and there for pictures.
Below, this view from Torquay looking across Labrador and Babbacombe Bays. Teignmouth is dead in front with Exmouth in the distance.
This below is of two of the three rocks that rise up just off Torquays Coast, they are Leadstone,Thatcher and Orestone and are favourite haunts for small boats fishing around them.
Not quite sure which hotel this is but it must have fabulous views across the bay.
Below, again looking across the bay, with Oddicombe beach directly below us. Apologies for one or two of the pictures were taken into the Sun.
This view was taken from the tree lined walk toward the Babbacombe Theatre, it lies on the edge of Babbacombe downs and looks down on Oddicombe Beach.
This view is of Oddicombe Beach, the small square building in the fore is the Down landing platform for the Cliff railway. This Railway has a gradient in places of 1 in 3 and is around 1800 metres long, it has been running since around 1926.
This is a short video of the coast from the cliff top walk.


Joke of the Day.

Nun in the Bathroom

A nun, badly needing to use to the restroom, walked into a local Pub. The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and every once in a while the lights would turn off. Each time the lights would go out, the place would erupt into cheers.
However, when the revelers saw the nun, the room went dead silent. She walked up to the bartender, and asked, "May I please use the restroom?
The bartender replied, "OK, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf." Well, in that case I'll just look the other way," said the nun. So, the bartender showed the nun to the back of the restaurant.
After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause. She went to the bartender and said, "Sir, I don't understand. Why did they applaud for me just because I went to the restroom?"
"Well, now they know you're one of us," said the bartender, "Would you like a drink?" But, I still don't understand," said the puzzled nun.
"You see," laughed the bartender, "every time someone lifts the fig leaf on that statue, the lights throughout all go out. Now, how about that drink?"
