Before we came away I had used some of our tesco clubcard vouchers for days out in Devon, so we had tickets for Kents Caverns and Pizza Express.
As well as the caves, there are woodland trails, digging for gems, activities for the kids, cafe and shop. There is a guided tour of the caves, which is really interesting and gives you a bit of history of how the caves were, who lived in them and how they were found. Megan found this really informative. Ben's best bit was when all the lights were switched off and we could experience just how dark it would really of been!!!
Whilst we were in Torquay we went to the harbour and then had tea at Pizza Express. A real treat after cooking in the tent all week!!!
We spent a day at Paignton Zoo, as this was somewhere Mr W really wanted to go, to give him the chance to use his proper camera! It is a lovely zoo, which is a great selection of animals. Mr W and Megan even managed to spot the elusive cheater, even though he was hiding in his house!
We had a lazy day around the camp site, playing, swimming and following another treasure trail!!!
We did something that we have been wanting to do for the 3 years we have been going to south Devon.
We went on a steam train and river cruise.
We ate our picnic on the harbour watching boats coming in and out and then went on the river cruise. This was great as lots of points of interest were pointed out to us as we sailed along and we even saw a mermaid!! A stone one admittedly, but still a mermaid!!!
Ben slept for the whole cruise, catching up on all the late nights!!!
After our cruise it was time for ice cream and another wander, followed by tea overlooking the river.
We caught the evening train back later on back into Paignton.
We went to one of my favourite beaches, Broadsands.
I love wandering up and down and collecting shells, and Megan and Ben loved this too. We had a small collection to bring home!
