Before leaving Brixham which is a large seaside town with so many tourists, we drove to the harbour to see the replica of the Golden Hind which is the boat that Sir Walter Raleigh sailed in. Went through Paignton to Torquay, a more upmarket tourist town and saw the coloured cabanas on the beach which were there when I came there in 1961. Also so many yachts . Drove through Babbacombe on the outskirts of Torquay where there are lovely hotels ...
... on his Grand Tour in the 18th century. There are paintings by Rubens, Van Dyck, Titian, Brueghel and the largest individual collection of Egyptian antiques in the world. They were clearly a very wealthy family! Their money came from a graphite mine in Cumbria. Apparently graphite was used to make gunpowder and there were only two graphite deposits in Europe.

I was pretty bummed out that we drove right by Stonehenge and did not have the time to park and take a look. I have been there before, back in the days when one could walk among the stones and touch them. Now there are fences around the stones and nobody can get within 50 feet of them. I’m glad we visited them when we did.
We stopped at a Welcome Service wayside at Tamworth ...
... our day nicely. Newquay has a population of 22,000 but in summer it grows to 100,000 or more with the addition of holiday makers!!! It is widely regarded as the surf capital of the UK and has 9 long sandy accessible beaches.
It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.
... in beautiful Wagait Beach. So it better not break down.
So the cost of the insurance did put a bit of a dampener on the purchase of the car but still a bit exciting. Walked back to his house, picked up the car - drove to the local electrical store and bought a cheap GPS for our journey. Made our way back to the flat to relax.
I cooked some more of our cheap steak, watched tv and went to bed.
