What a great weekend!!!

What a fantastic weekend Yasmin and I had in Torquay!!

It was brilliant!!

The weather was gorgeous!!

We Stayed at a fantastic B&B called The Shirley Hotel.

When we arrived we were greeted like old friends instead of paying guests!!!

The Shirley is a large Victorian house, it's really clean, very well kept and the rooms comfortable!!

Their breakfast is second to none with plenty even for the largest appetite!!

It's served in a large bright airy dining room decorated with the Victorian look that that Gary and Debbi have tried to keep throughout!!

It's a fabulous way to start the day!!

I would definitely stay there again and would reccommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in the Torquay area!!

We arrived nice and early so we popped to the seafront for a glass of wine in one of the bars!!

We had a lovley fresh crab sandwich for lunch (this took some finding!!) at a delightful 16th Century pub called The Hole in the Wall!!

We certainly chose some great resturants and bars while we were there!!

Saturday we decided to visit Babbacombe!!

If you have never been it is so pretty!!

We spent a good few hours there!!

We started with a glass of wine in the beautiful Cary Arms!!

This pub overlooks the sea, it is really pretty and peaceful!!

We decided to take the fenicular railway to the top (it is quite steep!!)

Then we walked along Babbacombe Downs Road which is very picturesque

and found the beautiful Angel's tea room where we ate a gorgeous (huge) Devonshire tea!!

All in all we had the most wonderful time!!!

Kindest wishes and love

This looks indeed like a brilliant weekend, Angel. I mean taking the railway to the top, how fun is that! Lovely pictures.
Wishing you a lovely evening, do enjoy your evening tea. I know I will, sipping my green tea out of a gorgeous green cup with white spots, pouring another fine cup out of a beautiful tea-for-one-teapot. ^_^
