Day Two

On the second day of our trip we went to Ilfracombe, a town on the north coast of Devon. The town's a bit run down these days, but the harbour area is still pretty. The weather was glorious, blue sky and sunshine and we decided to go on a boat cruise around the coastline. Luckily, we had the sense to take some extra layers with us. I felt sorry for those people who hadn't, as it was very breezy and chilly once we got out on to the water. It was pretty choppy too, and several people started feeling a bit queazy. We were hoping to see some seals and dolphins, but the water was too rough, so we had to settle for the dramatic coastline. Look at that sea, we could almost have been in the Caribbean!

What beautiful bright blue water. It does look like the ocean in the Caribbean. Those coastlines are spectacular.
