As is the case on the coastal path, sometimes you have to walk through a town, along streets and pavements with cars whizzing by. People all around being busy, the weather was warm for October. This walk was a result of me struggling to get the boys out of their pits at a reasonable hour (to be fair I was asleep until 9.30am!). So I chose a quick walk around Paignton interspersed with stops for food over about 3 miles. We’d had a bit of breakfast before leaving but on arrival we headed for a chippy for some chips (and fish for them) before strolling down to the seafront. The walk wasn’t far, perhaps a mile and a bit one way and the same back. We started just south of the pier, which is where I’d finished on my previous walk from Broadsands back in July (here). We finished at the Torquay sign before turning on our heels to return the way we came, picking up an ice cream on the way. A fine trip out with the boys as always and no doubt over the winter months we’ll carry on further into Torquay.
One thought on “Paignton”
I always enjoyed the long walks along the seafront in Aberystwyth when my kids were younger. They used to put country flags all along that walk and we enjoyed trying to work out and remember which ones were which. Happy times
