Coleton Fishacre

The ruins of the sea water pool on the beach beneath the National Trust house Coleton Fishacre was the setting for our Sunday lunch.

Our departure was delayed by a successful surgery by Adrian on a seagull with a fish hook snagged in its mouth. It was not co-operative and prompted me to note to add two items to my first aid kit – a wire cutter and a beak clamp. The bird was already weak and may not survive. The beach is covered with discarded rope and netting and plastics. A miserable reminder of our trashing of the earth and its other inhabitants.
