South Devon - July 2016 - Steam Train

On Monday morning, after breakfast, we caught the bus down to Kingswear with the intention of buying our Jubilee Pass.  This is a 2, 3 or 5 day pass that allows you unlimited travel on the steam train, ferries across to Dartmouth, boat trips and some buses.  We opted for the 3 day pass at £37 each which turned out to be great value for money.  Once our tickets were purchased we caught the first train to Paignton where we had lunch and a walk around the town.  It was a bit of a misty, drizzly morning but the sun came out in the afternoon for our trip on the train back to Kingswear. We then caught the ferry over to Dartmouth for a walk around the gardens and a brew sat outside people watching!  Our evening was spent on site watching the birds coming to our feeder.
