Staycation - Brixham

Today we stayed locally in Brixham. My brother Neill and my niece Eleanor were going to visit.

We were up about 0830, although as usual Reggie had kept us occupied fromabout 0530. He wakes at dawn and needs to have a comfort break!

Once breakfasted I took Reggie for a short walk on the path behind the house that goes to Berry Head. It doesn't show up on Google Maps. We got about halfway before turning around.

The relatives arrived about 1125 and we had a chat and then decided to walk down to Brixham itself. We are about a km to the south on top of the hill.

It was hot and so I wore my new Chinese hat. It did the job of keeping the sun off but is still horrible. It won't last the week in my possession.

Going downhill was easy enough with no thought of getting back...

Lunch was by the replica of the Golden Hind in the harbour.

A meal-deal from the Co-Op. This chip shop was opposite the Co-Op

We took a walk around the harbour and the marina. Reggie had a paddle before turning back and climbing the hills back to the Garden House.

We all needed a sit down when we eventually got home. Reggie very tired!

Once they had gone we looked for a supermarket on Google. Not much choice here but plenty in Paignton. So, we packed Reggie and stuff into the van with Morrison's the target. It was six miles according to the Satnav.

We found Lidl, then Aldi, and then Sainsbury's. As I wanted to but another pair of shorts to match the ones I am wearing, we went there. Sorry Morrison's.

The style of shorts that I wanted they didn't have. But food for the next few days they did. Amazingly we bought no alcohol. I find I can take it or leave it .. We did buy things that Slimming World wouldn't like!

We were back by 1645. Tried out the Nespresso machine. And then let Reggie sleep.

Tomorrow? Who knows. After all the driving I might have a rest from it and stay local. The Berry Head park is nearby with views across Torbay and also across to France. Although unlike home you can't see France!!
