Sunday was earmarked for family time. With athletic events (madam’s), running (me) and hubby’s interests we don’t spend much time together the three of us. As Madam and I had been away the previous weekend, it was time to make the time.
When your 13 year old asks to revisit a walk and we have previously done you seize the chance with both hands as it is a very rare occasion indeed. (The child will run miles, both off and on a track, but ask her to walk upstairs sometimes or to the local shop and my you are asking too much.) So off we set Sunday morning to East Portlemouth in south Devon, through some very narrow lanes.
Our walk was along the cliff tops with fabulous views
Midway through the walk we had a refreshment stop for the obligatory cider and sit to enjoy the scenery.
We then caught the boat across to Salcombe and had a wander among the streets admiring the views, the expensive cars, the yachts, the shop windows and the boutiquey stores. We inhaled the smell of fudge being made, before opting for a Devon Pasty sitting on the harbour wall being careful not to feed the seagulls. It was a nice day out.
The half marathon training continues having sourced a training plan, the running continues, admittedly not always per training plan. We are still swimming and I am amazing myself by how much I am not hating it!
Summer holidays continue, but I do wish the weather would pick up a bit, Madam and I want to get to the beach.
