Three go to Devon Again!

This time to Brixham.

Another staycation planned for this year 2022. I suppose it is a little guilt on my behalf that I have planned a few retirement trips away with my wife, Claire, and Reggie the dog. I have a trip planned to Czech for a bike rally at the end of May and as I will be going either solo or with a couple of biking buddies, Claire understandably was a little pee'd off.

So to make up for this I have been looking at trips to do all together. After nearly two years of "working from home", not furloughed like the really lucky people, I had to work every day. Online and 8 hours a day right up until my retirement day! Furlough, paid to sit at home and go on holiday!

So this trip in early May is to Brixham in Devon. The last time we "did" Devon was in 2019 and it was nice whilst we were there but a complete and utter pain in the ass to drive. Over 7 hours with only an hour of stops (all calculated by my TomTom 410!) to get there and over 8 to drive back. It was only 270 miles!

So this time the wisdom of regular travellers is to leave at the crack of dawn or even earlier and drive most of the way there and then rest when nearby. Hopefully beating the traffic and the rush hour of people getting to work. It will be a Friday to Friday let and so I expect it to be busy with people getting away for the weekend as the day progresses.

Where to go for days out whwn we are there. I have the National Trust book and there are a few places that are dog friendly. We are there a full week and so we have time. We might be able to get up and see Claire's friend Robin again and see his lovely house or even his restaurant! Dartmoor of course.

I also want to take a drive along the coast and look at the beaches at Slapton Sands and also take in the Kingswear Ferry! I've not been on a ferry for quite a few years.

Updates of course as they happen.
