Silent Sunday: Sunny Sidmouth

At last…the sun shines. We took advantage of it with a glorious family stroll on Sidmouth beach.

Cornish getaway…

A couple of weekends ago, we piled into the car and swapped sunny Devon for sunny Cornwall.

IMG_2892As a fully fledged Devonian now, the only place I can say compares is Cornwall – it feels, inexplicably, like home.

So, we arrived at the beautiful St Moritz Hotel overlooking Daymer Bay, between Rock and Polzeath, just in time for a glass of wine as the sun set.

IMG_2849Our long weekend consisted of beach walks, sea air, fresh fish and plenty of crabbing!

Silent Sunday: Devon, glorious Devon!

Never has ‘Devon is heaven’ been more exact than in this current beautiful weather.

As we bask in the sunshine, my Silent Sunday has a repetitive nature…as our weekend consisted of more of the same; sunshine, beach and BBQ.

This time there was an added twist, a two night mini break at Woodlands Leisure Park!

I hope you’ve been enjoying the sunshine too…
