A lovely family week in Devon

I had a really lovely week back in June, in Devon, to celebrate my Dad's 70th birthday. My sister was our very kind host, and we got up to all kinds of adventures, despite the, ahem, rather changeable weather.

When the sun came out to play (or least the rain held back) we dashed out to the glorious Saunton Sands - one of my favourite ever beaches - miles and miles of sand and space. It didn't disappoint and provided some fine reflections of the sky, making it seem even bigger, and us even smaller.

Some photo highlights are below and the rest are on Flickr, as always.

Another day of sunshine saw a trip to the stunning Rosemoor RHS gardens. Summer is the perfect time to visit - everything was blooming and it was so pretty and colourful :)

On a day of rain and dreariness we defiantly went out for a walk anyway! I can highly recommend the beautiful stroll from Lynmouth to Watersmeet, along the river, through lots of leafy greenness and beautiful waterfalls. Plus, the bonus ending is the National Trust Cafe in a picture perfect spot. Tea and cake? Don't mind if I do!

Let's not pretend there wasn't any rain. There was. Rather a lot. So my sister and I got up to lots of crafty activities. We hunted out some pretty fabrics and bargain finds in the Barnstaple charity shops (there are lots!) and set to work making Blythe t-shirts, skirts and hair bands, and doing lots of photography. We had so much fun. Thank you Jane!
