Ben had moved from Exeter to Plymouth for 6 months in that same year, doing work experience at local schools. It was one of the lower parts of Ben’s life as it was isolating, long hours, and difficult work. But on weekends, Ben would find solace in the beautiful seaside of Wembury. There was a cafe on the shore that he would go to for a cake and coffee, and would walk down the shores. This was his happy place for that time.
It is a beautiful walk along the shores – a quiet and rocky beach – and the cafe is a wonderful old mill house with stone walls and minimal decoration. It is a lovely hideaway from life. Ben still thinks of it fondly. x
