09:07:19Erika's first time on the Elizabeth Line!
09:33:24Erika and Paddington.
10:17:19Evil Under The Sun, which I had brought along to read on the train journey.
10:20:08The map of the fictional version of Burgh Island.
11:53:42We also played consequences on the train.
11:59:35At midday I had a can of Tribute.
12:30:27Passing through Starcross on the train.
13:13:17A glimpse of Dartmoor.
13:35:42In a taxi in Plymouth to get from the train station to the car hire place.
14:39:20The first glimpse of Burgh Island from the car.
14:39:25Better glimpses of Burgh Island from the car.
15:10:19At the hotel now, having an arrival glass of Champagne in the Palm Court.
15:15:36Erika having a welcome mocktail.
15:47:15Some photos of our home for the night - Agatha's Beach House.
15:47:25Some Champagne our friends had kindly ordered for us.
15:47:46The main bed.
15:48:36That Champagne again.
15:50:11The extra beds in the loft.
16:05:12The view of the hotel and the beach house.
16:05:22...and with me pointing.
16:09:18The beach house as seen from the beach beneath it.
16:09:45Chie and Erika poking through the door.
16:32:57Chie and Erika and the sea tractor. We had arrived by Land Rover earlier this afternoon as the tide was out, but we would have a chance to ride this when we were leaving tomorrow.
16:33:55It was a bit windy!
16:36:59Chie and Erika enjoying the English weather.
16:42:46The sea tractor and the Pilchard Inn.
16:55:25Chie and Erika in the hot tub outside the beach house. This was really fun and the highlight of the trip.
16:58:15I brought along the Champagne our friends had kindly ordered for us.
17:00:15The weather was a bit grim but who cares?
17:05:15Cheers to English holidays!
17:30:22The three of us in the hot tub. Hopefully you can see we were having a very nice time of it.
17:49:47Alas eventually it was time to get out. I like this shot of the girls still in the tub with the rather bleak looking coastal scenery behind them.
19:21:06While the girls were getting ready for dinner I went and inspected the Pilchard Inn.
20:11:11Pre-dinner cocktails in the Palm Court.
20:25:18The menu at the restaurant didn't really appeal for either me or Erika so we made a last minute decision to switch to the pub instead, for what ended up being quite a late dinner.
22:01:33Back in the beach house after dinner, we lit the fire for effect.
