On the Road with Tom and Gloria travel blog

This is as close to Agatha Christie as we got!

Torquey - the British Riviera


Beautiful roads to Torquey

Working phone booths in the middle of nowhere

Narrow roads in town and out


Saw more thatched roofs here than in Ireland

What a huge mistake I made today! I thought it was Wednesday and booked a driver to take us 2 hours away to Agatha Christie's home called Greenway. When we got there it was closed because it is TUESDAY! Holy cow- what an expensive mistake. We made lemonade out of lemons and spent the afternoon at the seaside resort of Torquay known as the "British Riviera".

Norma and I sat by the water and had a lunch of fish and chips and then walked around visiting shops etc. The drive there and and back was so scenic. I feel very badly that I screwed up - deep down both Norma and I are very disappointed. I hope tomorrow's trip to Barnstable will take away some of the sting of today's fiasco.
