Great photos, perfect day and a salcombe blast is a classic. Did you get to see the seal colony just tucked around start point headland?

As you go from Dartmouth side, just as you go around the point there is a little beach area (under the lighthouse), and they tend to be on the west/salcombe side from there. Think its before the area known as black stone. You tend to get 10-20 common seals, the lighter speckled coat. They tend to be really well colour coded with the rocks and easy to go straight past them.


There is also normally a grey seal group about 5-10, best seen at low tide. These are normally as you come out of Dartmouth, heading towards Torbay, its the first cluster of rocks which I think is known as mew stone.

Had some friends out there the other week and both groups were there then.

Thanks for details - I stuck my nose out of Salcombe today but it was too lumpy just to go round there.
