Sketch of boats in Torquay Harbour by Hannah Foley ( in the South West summer is still in full flow, it being 7 degrees warmer than it is at home in Scotland. This week Little Owl and I took a boat trip along the Devon coast to Torquay. Here’s a quick sketch of some the boats in the harbour. There is an old quarry in the cliffs just before you sail into Torbay. The Devonian Limestone excavated from this spot went to build most of Westminster in London. However the cliffs before you get to the quarry are made of much softer sand stone. From the sea we could see right inside the rooms of a house that suffered in one particular landslide. The Daily Mail has some incredible photos of it here. It was a bit of an unfortunate outcome for the lady who bought the house in a blind auction.
