Boarding the Ferry at Totnes the boys set off on the 90 minute river cruise to Dartmouth.
Harry & Henry get out their little boat to play with.
Oliver comes along to join in with the game.
They were thrilled to see quite a lot of wildlife, from the buzzards soaring above, some kestrals, herons nesting and some Little Egret in the distance.
They spotted some Shelduck
Canadian geese nesting
Most exciting for they boys though was being escorted into Dartmouth by the Royal Navy.
The Naval College on the hill.
On the seafront of Dartmouth the boys enjoy a spot of fishing and playing with their boats.
Seems they didn't notice the sign that said 'No Fishing off the Pontoons'.
Before long the Ferry arrived ready to take them over to Kingswear ready for the Steam train ride back to Totnes.
The two red head lads enjoy a bit more birdwatching armed with their binoculars and camera.
Kingswear Station coming up!
Henry 'the Engine Driver' and Oliver 'the Ticket Inspector' wait for the train to arrive.
"Here it comes" Henry calls. Poor Oliver faints from the excitement.
Never mind...Oliver soon recovers and gets to experience first hand the engine and standing on the foot plate with Henry.
After the tea break the Engine is moved to the front of the train...or is it the back of the train?
Here it comes towards the viewing carriage.
"Look!" Henry exclaims, "It is going to tow us backwards".
The engine is coupled to the the viewing carriage and off they set.
Henry enjoys the scenery
Oliver collects a ticket from one of the passengers.
Before long the train journey is finished. The boys get to admire the Engine Hercules one last time before it is driven off for the night.
