After a comical few days of trying to phone each other in locations without a decent signal, we eventually met up with with Andrew & Alex, Eva & Billy in the seaside village of Bigbury-on-Sea, South Devon. A sandy spit stretches 270 yards out to Burgh Island where an art deco hotel looks out over the bay. A couple of Agatha Christie books were inspired by it and a version of Evil Under the Sun was filmed there. Andrew & Alex even splurged on a black tie dinner & night there a few years ago. Great to see them, and our first meeting with Billy.
On the beach below a sea tractor awaits to take people back to the mainland when the tide comes in. Essential for those who've lost track of time in the island's little pub.
