Burgh Island
Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May 2017
Chie and Erika flew off to Japan in the morning and I took advantage of my weekend to myself to go and stay somewhere I'd been wanting to stay for some time - the Burgh Island Hotel.

Saturday on Burgh Island
Saturday 20th May 2017
Waved the girls off at Heathrow in the morning, then went back to Paddington to get a train down to Plymouth. From there a taxi to Bigbury and then the sea tractor across to Burgh Island! Spent a lovely afternoon wiling away the time in the idyllic Pilchard Inn and having a general wander around the island and the hotel, before dressing for dinner and lapping up the 1930s charm of the hotel in the evening.
Burgh Island to Starcross
Sunday 21st May 2017
Breakfast at the Burgh Island Hotel, then rather reluctantly checked out, got a taxi to Dartmouth, the ferry across to Kingswear, then the steam train from there to Paignton. A normal train from there to Starcross where I popped in to visit Dad and Janie for a bit before getting the train back to London.
