Noss walk

As regular readers will know I have a mad friend and yesterday was her birthday. She wanted to go on her favourite dog walk starting at 9am, otherwise the car park would be full. This is the car park at Noss Mayo in the South Hams, Devon. Noss is situated just inland from the sea on the river Yealm, the houses stand on the cliffy banks of the river and all seem to have a view of the water and of the pretty village on the opposite bank, Newton Ferrers. We walked towards the sea aiming to then walk in a circle and back into Noss alongside the water, we call the walk the Warren.


Here’s the view as you reach the sea with the Mew stone at Wembury in the distance. It was still hazy but the sun was strong and it would be a two hour walk so it was good that the last part of the walk would be in the wooded shade.


As we came closer to the inlet a single boat appeared, Noss is full of boats and most houses on the river seem to have moorings and because of that it attracts the sailing crowd.



As usual, we reviewed the past year, made plans for the next and generally put the world, well our world, to rights. I am looking forward to other friends coming down to the South West and staying in Noss over the next few weeks, so this is by way of a taster  – for them. Off to Fowey tomorrow, so more Cornish coastal pics to come.

    It is a yearly journey I try to take and am grateful to my dear pal Ruth – just as mad who came along. Beautiful views along the coastal path, lovely smells of flowers and foliage, good chat and a fantastic pub at the end of it all. How can life be better than that.
