the South West Coast Path
We parked at Goodrington Sands where three hours is £4 except I got a bit confused and put £3 in the machine so we only had two hours for our walk. In hindsight we should have just jumped on a bus from Torquay. My dayrider ticket would have been £5, but Dave has a free bus pass. Then we wouldn't have had any time restraints or been obliged to return to our start point. We'll know for next time!

Having originally planned to go further than Broadsands Beach, some three-quarters of an hour's walk from Goodrington Sands, we were actually happy to pause there a while and have our first paddle of the summer. After a few minutes the water felt positively warm and Dave is keen to return soon and swim. We also treated ourselves to a Devon-made Yarde Farm ice cream each (I loved the Lime And Basil flavour) before scrubbing dried sand off our feet and booting up for the return walk.
