…but let’s not be too sorrowful as I shall soon return. Tomorrow we are off to the beautiful county of Devon for a week’s holiday. More specifically, we shall be staying in Torquay and travelling hither and thither from that town as our base.
We have been through Devon many times on the way to Cornwall and even engaged in some border skirmishes while travelling around, so we thought it was time to visit the county for its own sake.
Our train leaves Paddington (the station, not the bear) at 8:35 am and will carry us by 11:46, or so it is promised, to Torquay station where the hotel has kindly offered to pick us up.
Knowing the British weather, we will take clothing for a range of climates while hoping for the best. Our plan is to explore by train and bus and to bring back lots of photos. It might just happen that we sample the odd cream tea or three as opportunity presents itself.
So ’tis but a short absence, a brief parting, before we return to Islington, suitably refreshed, to take up our exciting London life where we left off.
Til then, gentle reader, adieu, but not for long.
