DARTMOUTH, STEAM RAILWAY, AND CRUISE

 July 15, 2014

Visiting Dartmouth with our group of Great Rail Journeys, we travelled first by rail to Paignton.



Then we we cruised up the scenic River Dart and admired the beautiful landscape. In the first picture the yellow house, was Agatha Christie's home.

We also took the Dartmouth Steam Railway



It was quite a strange feeling to travel in this old train with its special noises and whistles and I felt taken back to my early childhood.

When we arrived in Dartmouth we had a couple of hours to walk through this beautiful town.



The houses are painted in pastel colors which looked so cheerful !









There was ebb tide and the boats sat on the ground











a beautiful architecture and cute little streets,





a park



We had lunch in a nice pub



and just before we left, we could listen to the last Dartmouth news, and were centuries taken back !
