An 07:00 start and the first leg was the A30 down to Honiton services to meet up with the Dorset WSCCers for breakfast. Cloudy but dry it was a good run and by 08:05 there was 4 Westfields in the car park and it was bacon roll and tea time.
A straight forward run to Dawlish with a fuel and sweet stop at Sainsbury's before heading off to Colin and Pat's. By 10:30 all 6 cars had gathered and we headed off on the "Shore to Shore Tour" taking the A379 from Dawlish to Teighmouth then over the causeway to Sheldon and on to Torbay and then Brixham for the first stop. After a drink we split up and toured the harbour and small market. By 13:00 we were back in the cars and heading over to Dartmouth via the cable ferry and then off to Bigbury-on-sea and lunch.
After parking up we walked over the sand bar to Burgh Island and the Pilchard Inn for a pint and baguette. After lunch we had a fairly quick run back to Dawlish to booking into the various B&Bs before heading back to Colin & Pat's for a BBQ.
The following day was to be a treasure hunt followed by lunch in the Smuggler's Inn but after a night of Tricia spending more time in he bathroom than bed we picked up the car and headed home. Many thanks to Pat and Colin for an excellent weekend, well apart from Tricia not know which way to face the toilet..........
