Slapton Ley, Devon.

Hi, It was such a lovely day today that Sue and I did a ride from Teignmouth to Start Point Lighthouse, through N Abbot, on to Paignton, across the River Dart by Ferry.

Then on along the coast to the lovely Black Pool Sands.

Looking down on the huge beach of Beesands

This picture is looking back from the beginning of the mile long Start Point Lighthouse walk.

This is the Start Point lighthouse.

Start Point light house reached at last, worst bit to come, the uphill walk back. Note here, Sue and Jason a friend did this walk, i only went halfway.

When walking back up Sue took this picture of a lovely little village (forgotten name) tucked into the cliffside.

Lastly a few pictures of Waterfowl on Slapton Ley.
The Ley consists of a piece of land that seperates the beach and Sea from a freshwater Lake. Here then they are.
