Last Monday was a beautiful sunny day so I went for a walk with my camera. I decided to go through Brixham and along the side of the Fish Market which I don't think I've shown you before.
Here is a view of The Fish Market looking across to Paignton and Torquay
I started my journey at the top of the Berry Head side of Brixham, then walking down from my house to these lovely views. I'm about to walk around the marina and along the left side of the fish market as you look at the picture above
The Breakwater Lighthouse standing out brilliantly in the sun with blue seas behind
One of my favourite views of Brixham Town, doesn't it look so pretty?
The tide is out
Swans in the harbour
Boats being repaired and painted
For those of you who visited Brixham this summer, look how quiet this area is along the harbour with all the tourist shops and huts closed up for winter.
Swans and gulls together in the sunshine and the shelter of the inner harbour
I'm really not sure what this bloke was doing but the Herring Gull seems interested. He was doing this when I walked past on my journey and was still there clinking about in the mud with chains when I came back. It did occur to me that perhaps he was an 'Incomer' who had upset 'The Locals' and they had chained him up waiting for the tide to come in. The Herring Gull would therefore be waiting for his supper!
Around by the entrance to the Fish Market. I took a lot of photos so have made a collage to make it easier to view and read
On my walk along this path I am in fact on the South West Coastal Path which goes all the way to Broadsands and beyond. One of my lovely feathered friends keeps me company.
Behind me are the boats taking over a fair bit of the Oxen Cove car park in the winter
The tourist boats having a rest after a very busy season
Looking across from Oxen Cove to The Breakwater
Looking at the other side of the Fish Market and the trawlers going about their business
And finally my walk for today is finished looking back across the outer harbour towards Brixham Marina.
and I head back home
I'm so sorry folks, I forgot to stop for a cream tea with you....maybe next time!
Have a good week
