The sea kissed cliffs and beaches of south Devon. A short walk along the coast on a hot August day.

Beautiful photos, it looks like you had a cracking day. I find Devon just that bit more pleasant to walk in than Cornwall - much the same scenically, but far less spoilt by tourism.

I have never walked in Cornwall. You are right about Devon. It is always very quiet when you get onto the coast path; even when it is only a few miles from a town.
