Teignmouth's inner harbour, known as "The Salty", has its own little beach at low tide where you'll find the local small boats and pilot gigs moored. Because the harbour is tidal the craft are anchored to fixed chains which you need to keep an eye out for.
This is especially true when you've got your camera - there you are looking for interesting pics then SPLAT! Also true if you've you've had a few beers LOL!
There’s a long stretch of wall from Dawlish to Teignmouth running along the seafront. Here is where the railway line runs before zooming through a very long tunnel. It’s also here that during wet & windy weather, trains hurtle under the waves at 90 miles per hour! Virgin had to stop at Dawlish because the sea was coming over the bridge, & hitting the road next door. All the passengers had to evacuate onto buses, as one man said
“A lot of water was being flung on to the line as the trains were passing, & engines shut down”.
I’m trying to get a picture uploaded from the Daily Mirror which shows spectacular footage of the waves coming over the roof of Virgin trains. It was like a scene from the movie “The day after Tomorrow”
If I can get any more, & I’ll add it on.
