North Devon

Woolacombe Bay North Devon Shenannegans October 2010

This small sample of pics were taken on our 'second-out-of-term-time holidays!  Home edding has more than just natural learning as one of its many perks!  Cheaper holidays are a real bonus too.  We are so lucky to have use of my families holiday cottage in Woolacombe... we always manage Autumn as this is our favourite time of year and dear Mother Nature never fails us by delivering a gorgeous Indian-Summer somewhere in our ten day hols!

 Martin 'hates' this face I Gurn!  He quite literally turns his head and Gags!  I have no idea why.  None-the-less, we were all in stitches in this, our last night in North Devon at the local pub where you can by a great home-cooked meal and good local ale.  We were all waiting for our meals and were finding ways of amusing ourselves!  Our girlies are that bit older now (2013 at time of posting this 2010 photograph) and won't appreciate their versions being posted!  Tut!  ;-)

Ahh!  This is another of our favourite places to visit each time we venture South West; Tor Down Farm in Gunn.  Lovely pure-Devonian welcome on a genuine Darling Buds Of May type working farm (minus the flock of farm children - only our two).  This is Buster with the girlies.  Sheila the 'lady of the farm' made us fresh scones, with gorgeous clotted cream, sponge cakes and oodles of hot tea and coffee after our refreshing walk around the acres and acres of beautiful farm land tagging onto the Tarka Trail too at some point.  Blissful memories of that day.  Big Sigh!

 Woolacombe Bay Beach... The most rewarding sandcastles and just the BEST place to Ruuuuuunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn! There is space space space to just feel so free and well-aired!  This is another BEST place to just 'be'!  We often manage to land there on a lovely warm day slap bang in the middle of October!  Perfect!  Hettie runnnnnnnnninggggggg!
Milly.  A little blurred picture but in happy contemplation!  Probably loving the sensation on her feet from squirming her toes through the wet sand.  If this were taken now I'd say she was on her Nintendo/Nexsus!
