Woke up to blue skies and drove to Devon arriving around lunch time. Great views across to Wales from our cliffside accomodation. We came here to ride the Lynton to Lynmouth cliff railway but there is a lot more to see and do and we could probably use another day.

... I only hope that I can offer her the same hospitality she has offered me!
I will also miss the wonderful teachers I've had since being here. They've become friends, and I'm sad I wont be seeing them on my campus at home. Not to mention, I can't forget about the many friends I've made in my classes. I always think about my first day of Shakespeare class and how everyone was so friendly and wanted to speak to me.
