Sun and sea
Today Torbay felt like the Mediterranean. Sparkling clear blue sea, unbroken sunshine, white shingle coves. We swam from Fishcombe to Churston, meeting a seal on the way; I have encountered him before (he is well known in the area). The underwater scenes were amazing. The sunlight played through the sea, illuminating the rocks and seaweed. It was mesmerising. We then found a huge slab of rock, the perfect sunbathing terrace. Bliss.
