Hi Rich, glad to hear you're all sorted. Having lived in Kingsbridge for most of my childhood and teenage years and visiting regularly as my parents still live there, I would strongly recommend that you drive to Kingsbridge and take a look at the channel there at low tide. Although the channel is fairly well marked by red and green poles from Salcombe up most of the estuary, once you get close to Kingsbridge the poles disappear and the channel is very narrow and convoluted. The first time we boated from Salcombe to Kingsbridge (when I was 7) we got stuck on the mud at the head of the estuary! Luckily we had just moved in to a house in Kingsbridge so we (Mum, Dad, sister, Grandad and both Nans) waded through the stinky black goo, clambered up a ladder and walked up to our new house where we washed off the mud and had a few cups of tea while waiting for the tide to come back in!
Also, we are likely to be down there before June so could leave your Treasure Hunt prize at my parents' house for you to collect, if you like? Let me know if you want me to do that and I'll PM you their address.
Hope you all have a great time - I love it there!
