River Avon

After some heavy building work early in the week (groundworks mostly) the weather at last took a short turn for the better so Susie and I took a walk to explore the lower Avon valley between Topsham bridge and Loddiswell, following the old route of the railway. A look for mushrooms but nothing found.

On Sunday Dominic and I took to the Canadian canoe and followed the Avon again, this time from Aveton Gifford all the way to the sea at Bantham with views to Burgh Island. Fun fighting the incoming tide when we hit the sea, but more leisurely on the way back upstream. Lots of kingfishers on the estuary and some big bass.
