Good, I am glad you are having fun, that is what life should be about.

Where are you at? That looks familiar. Lovely setting.

 

As our pre booked holiday to Egypt looks highly unlikely to go ahead as planned, we have taken the precautionary measure and booked a week away in the van. So we may we’ll be coming back to Dawlish next month.

 

Cheers, Ade.

It's the small harbour at Lymestone Ade, just around the back of the main street, very pleasant.

 

Nice pub for them as wants one by the station and Susannah's Tearoom just up the road ( closed at night ).

Your bike looks the business Grahame!

 

Good evening dear fellow,

 

Thank you, very enjoyable and I tend to get quite a few comments too !

 

One comment generally aimed at me as I ride is ....." That's a brute !" to which I usually respond with....."Thank you and the bike's not bad either !!! " :jester:

Grahame

We are hoping to camp at Exeter Racecourse in the motorhome sometime and the walk along the estuary looks inviting. Do you know if  the car parks along there have height barriers. Another place we like to visit is the nature reserve at Dawlish Warren we went there when living at Brixham but by car and I cannot remember whether there was a barrier there.

I do remember clearly there was a barrier at Sharkam Point, Brixham.

 

Regards Don

Hi Don,

 

I can't say categorically but I will try and find out for you.

Don,

just a thought but would Google street view be able to show height barriers?

Google street view often stops just before the intersting bit but yes it would be worth trying. I am not to sure where they exactly are and just though maybe Grahame has parked there and then got the bike out. The other thing is some of the street view may be quite out of date.

Hi Don, I am going down to Dawlish again next month.

 

I recall there is a car park to the right of the little tunnel leading to the sea front. A motorhome would not fit through that tunnel. You would normally drive through that then turn left to the car parks.

 

Cheers, Ade.

Good point that Ade. So I looked on Google the tunnel is 8ft clearance the Motorhome is about 10ft. However there is a pay and display nearby which doesn't show a a barrier so it would be park there and walk. It was 15 years ago when we left Brixham so I think I am allowed to forget the tunnel.
