After a leisurely breakfast we headed into Appledore which was only a 15 minute walk away. We walked down the road as it said the coastal path was cut off at high tide.

We walked by the harbour, looking at the big anchor and the sea warning bell.

Walking up the road we came to Docton Court where we purchased a Heritage Trail book which helped us find our way around.

Appledore Richmond dock.

The welcome sign for Appledore.

Pitt Court, houses haven’t changed since the1700s and the cobbles are still there today.

Vernons Lane and Alpha Place were my favourite buildings, cottages were built in 1866 and still there todayAmazing!

We followed the map showing us many more historical buildings of Appledore and then we had a well earned break ………. more gin I hear you cry……. No coffee and my other passion, cake. Stopping off at John’s We were amazed at the delicacies they had inside. Dave found some moonshine which was 50% proof and after a little sample he just had to buy it.

A little more mooching round then it was gin time, sat outside The SeagateWe watched the world go by and a sign painter at his task.

The coastal path heading back ( following footprints)

had a choice of low or high tide paths so we could have gone this way this morning!! Never mind.

Then…….guess what!?!?!?!?!?!?!? The phone rang…….. yippee we are off to Lundy island tomorrow and you will see it too. Xx🐧xx
