Living Coasts Torquay Devon


 Hi,

Over Easter we went to Torquay for a few days,  on Good Friday the weather was beautiful,  but we woke up on Saturday to rain and wind,  the rest of the weekend we were blown, battered and rained on,  hence the flu I expect.
On the Sunday we went to Living Coasts,  this is our second visit and its well worth a visit,  Living Coasts stands on the very edge of Tor Bay.   Living coasts features a range of fascinating coastal creatures from Penguins to playful fur seals. In the picture under the Penguins is a picture of a sea duck,  this duck came over to me and literally thumped me on the leg, looked at me and walked off,  if I had any food he definately was not having it, for such a small animal he had a definately strong beak.

This is just a few of the photos I took as we walked around, I might add that this was one of the bits where we managed to walk around in the dry,  when we finished we went into the cafe and the heavens opened,  which at least we stayed dry for a while.

Fur seals waiting for their food,  they were watching the other fur seals having their fish.




 These last pictures were taken from inside the cafe over looking Tor Bay.

If you get chance to go to Torbay do visit Living coasts its an interesting place with plenty for the kids to do and see,

                  Hugs
