Week 7: Plymouth to Brixham - Day 45

Salcombe to Start Point
12 Miles
Word of the day: Friends

We walked, accompanied by Doug, to Gara Rock in very poor visibility but stopped to sketch anyway just east of the beach. Moved on via Gammon Head and Elender Cove to a point just short of Prawle Point - the most southerly point in Devon. 

Stopped to sketch the ancient field boundary stones known as Dragons Teeth - and Maggie Smith (printmaker) joined us for lunch.

As the day got warmer we headed along the raised beach below the old cliffs at East Prawle to within a few hundred metres of Lannacombe. We were then diverted 2 miles inland to avoid a major land slip.

Met up with poet Jenny Osborne and her partner Kevin and went for a paddle to cool our feet after the steep hills on the diversion. Walked with them to Mattiscombe and then headed inland for a night with artists Ysabel Winzar and Tony Watson.
