We’re so lucky in this part of the country, particularly now that the clocks have changed and the evenings stay light for so much longer. We’re only a short car journey from a lovely evening walk. It had been ages since we’d been to Dawlish Warren or Dawlish and our main objective on this particular evening was actually to get food. I’d Googled “best places to get fish and chips in Devon” and had come up with a result which showed a mobile Street Kitchen called La Cantina. On further investigation it turned out that they now had a static site in Dawlish Warren. Looking at the menu and photos on Facebook, we decided to give it a go and weren’t disappointed! After a lush burger we decided a walk around the coast was in order.
After the devastation to the sea wall and railway line in Dawlish in February 2014, an ongoing rebuild has been taking place. It was interesting to see the site storing equipment still being used to repair and maintain the wall at the far end of Dawlish Warren and on the beach at Dawlish. Part of the wall is still closed to the public closer to Dawlish as the work to repair it continutes. None of this stops it being a lovely walk with wonderful views though, so if you’re in the area do stop off and you could definitely do worse than calling at La Cantina for some of their wonderful “real chips”!
