Favorite thing: You need never get lost in Teignmouth, nor wonder what you are looking at. Teignmouth is emminently walkable and all around the town, and along the seafront, the local authority provides useful maps and information signs. The maps are accurate and easy to read and the signs informative, giving a bit of historical and local background (and even directions to the nearest pub - pic #2).

Favorite thing: Around the back over looking the docks is a stretch of sandy beach known by me as "The backwater". This is where most people park thire boats for the night, & is also where people come to chill out the rest of the evening air. There are many houses along here which must be wonderful to live in, all of the walls are different colours like Ireland. There is a bench I like to sit on by a pink House, where the Hook family have lived for many generations. There is some lettering made out of red painted sea shells which are stuck on the walls, forming the name Hook. take a look at the front door, & u will see that it's surrounded by the frame of a hollowed out rowing boat. Here are wonderful views of the bay streatching all the way across to Shaldon & the bridge beyond. Here you can watch the boats bobbing on the tide, other boats as they come in, & the larger fishing boats as they prepare to leave the docks for the night. Occasional dog walkers come by, & the birds as they settle on the bird feeders. lights on the distant new Abbot rd can be seen, its so very peaceful.
Fondest memory: The sound of the seagulls is the first thing I have always remembered waking up to ever since I was a child. I used to play on the jetty's, & there were numerouse places to hide as a kid I found it so very exciting.
