I recently visited Falmouth for a few days. I used to live there some 40 years ago.

On the seafront, on the sands, there was a wooden building that was used as a café.

Over the years, this has grown from a large wooden building to a lovely brick café.

You can sit and watch the beach, whatever the weather, and there was a good choice of food. There are people of all ages from mums with children, to older people.

This has, in no way, spoilt the seafront.

Why don't you book a coach and go and see what can be done?

I have lived in Budleigh Salterton for more than 30 years, so I am not a newcomer.

The café is called the Gylly Café. I guess a picture would be on the Web.
