A wet weekend in February.

We met at the Cherub in Dartmouth, stocked up on essential supplies and headed for our flats at Torcross. On Friday afternoon we strolled to the Cricket Inn at Beesands and found it shut! Friday evening was spent at the Church House at Stokenham.

On Saturday we parked on Bolberry Down and walked around Bolt Tail to Hope Cove, and then completed the circular walk around the fields through Bolberry back to the cars, stopping off at a pub in Outer Hope and the Port Light on the Down. The weather was reasonable until we got back to the Port Light and then the heavens opened.

Length of walk 8 km, ascent 377 m.

We managed to grab two large tables in the Start Bay Hotel in the evening and had fish and chips.

On Sunday we went into Dartmouth. Some went shopping while others walked the coast path to Blackstone Point and Compass Cove. In the afternoon a few of us walked around part of Slapton Ley. Dinner in the Church House.
