The Rock WalkFebruary 13 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 9 °C
By 10.30 the weather had totally changed so we decided to go out rather than use the spa. Marc wanted to go and look at all the big houses on the hillside overlooking Torquay. We got up there via terrace gardens and the rock walk, a twisty path mainly steps which zig zags across the hillside. As we reach the top the rain started, it wasnt to bad, we meandered our way back down to the Visto lounge bar for a well deserved cuppa.
After which we walked along the beach to Preston park before going inside The Grand Hotel for a nosey. It was ok in there but nothing special.
We walked back along the sea front to Torquay before going to Amici for a late lunch. Amici is the sister restaurant to Biancos, they are on opposite sides of the road. Amici is more of an every day italian serving things like pizza, and is open during the day which Bianco's isnt. We have seen it many times but never been in. My contact at Bianco's had given us a 2 for 1 lunch voucher so we thought we might as well give it a try. We absolutely loved it, some of the menu is similar but its cheaper and attracts a different clientele, being more family oriented. We were back in the room before 4pm as Marc was absolutely done in. The room is glorious right in the sun with a lovely view. Marc was asleep within minutes.Read more
