Spring at London Bridge
As we walked down the coastpath from Daddyhole Plain in Torquay, the view out to sea was hazy and almost eerie. The sea was glassy and flat calm, and everything seemed rather blurred and dreamlike As we got nearer the water, we got a sudden glimpse through the trees of petrol-blue water. Having made our way down through the sadly neglected and rubbish-strewn gardens above Peaked Tor Cove, we changed in the sun before setting out on our aquatic adventure to London Bridge, a natural arch that just cries out to be swum through. The water was calm, clear and beautiful, and we swooshed through the channel between Saddle Rock and the coastline, before heading towards the majestic arch, which we swam underneath. Out the other side, we swam further along the coast to a cave where the water gurgled in the crevices.
