Brixham ...Breath of fresh air ( with a hint of fish)
We walked it first , Lord Nelson and me wanted to be sure that Brixham wasnt a waste of time and anything like Torquay, So armed with as big a stick as he could carry and me wearing a flak jacket, Sammy took point with his radio at the ready and so we strolled (Briskley) out of Torquay and into Paignton on route for Brixham.
Child hood memories for Sammy as we spot an old 4x4 kiddies ride that he had been on when he was a child, we couldnt believe it was still there ! of course the first thing that flashed through my mind was " I wonder how much money this machine has made in the last ten years" ?
Anyways paignton does have a small drying harbour, but completely useless for yours truely whos sure a long keel boat needs at least two meters or 6 ft of water (in old money) to stay afloat !
kiss me quick , candy floss , and a lovely old pier, paignton has it all, just not my cup of tea , mmmmmm cup of tea , great idea, plenty to choose from and we sat by the old harbour supping a brew, whilst nelson was retching up stones and scaring off customers.
lovely coastal walk all through here and the path into Brixham was pretty special, some of the little rock pools along the shore line were stunning, so much so nelson jumped in , great now hes going to stink ! (worse)
AND Brixham --- Love it , old school harbour and fishing port meets modern day marina and tourists galore, it caters for everyone, we stopped on the town quay visitors pontoon for a week and watched life go by , even had some visitors Mr and Mrs Weeks and the family paid a visit, so crab fishing was firmly on the agenda !
