Eight of us set off from Warren Car park, where skylarks could be heard through the grey misty morning.
We descended to the picturesque village of Noss Mayo, where we walked across two low tide causeways so that we could briefly set foot in Newton Ferrers.
Then we retraced our steps, and left Noss Mayo along the wooded bank of the Yealm Estuary where we were sheltered by the trees from a heavy rain shower.
Our lunch stop was at the mouth of the Yealm Estuary, where we huddled below a wall for shelter from the wind and picnicked with a grey but atmospheric view of Wembury and the Mew Stone.
As we set off again, the wind was eventually accompanied by misty rain which gradually obscured the view. But, while members discussed the onset of aches and pains, everybody stayed jovial.
After the walk, we were all glad of tea and cake and a good natter at Otter Nurseries.
