Devon has such a pretty landscape - I should have taken more photos, I'll make sure I do next time.
We visited Plymouth for a spot of retail therapy...
I didn't intend to take photos there, but ended up
with this Sundial, yes it really is...
the numbers around the side of the water
show the time and yes it was correct,
just after 11 o'clock in the morning
Another trip out was to Torbay
- this is Brixham harbour -
Torquay in the distance -
this is Paignton - still part of Torbay
the castle like building is actually a Hotel.
I wouldn't mind staying there some day.
What on earth is this!!!
Set in the ground it indicates the South West Coastal path for walkers.
Mind you, I didn't see any others, so perhaps the person who
put it there was lost or just ran out of plaques!
Beach Huts at Paignton....why are beach huts such
photogenic little buildings - I just love them.
Another day we went to
(the place William originated from)
this is their market hall. It was buzzing with crafts and people
(plus it was warm in there - it was freezing cold outside)
Someone was selling wooden garden furniture,
including a wooden horse and foal.
(there was a donkey too but I missed that, I
didn't put my glasses on...silly me)
I did get this tree made of tiles in the picture though...
this was probably about 20 foot high
read about it here...
When we drove home, we passed by the edge of Dartmoor
which had quite a bit of snow on it.
Hope to visit again before long and take some
reference photos for future paintings up there.
*please note: those of you outside the UK, remember we drive on the Left - so the Driver is sat on the Right...just thought I would point this out before you see some of the pics
and a wise guy comments!
We had such a good time
Looking forward to going back again
