Yet another day out


By cmsue


Well the weather wasn’t great again today so off we went again Sarnies and flask in the car.
We didn’t go far about 9 miles from home to a little hamlet called Cockington, nr Torquay.

The forge,its still in use today.

This lovely cafe, with lovely cream teas,yummy

If you look closely in the shop window on the left there is a little dog lying there.

Yes he is alive he moved his eyes :)

This is the old School House

The walled garden, where they used to grow veg and fruit for the big house, its a Rose garden now.

Then we went to see the beautiful church but that is yet another blog
