Dartmouth, taken on our recent short break.
The Golden Hind, in Brixham harbour. We didn't go on it.....it's not the real thing but a replica, and it just looked too commercialised, especially with a couple of employees dressed up to supposedly look like pirates manning the souvenir tourist tat stands in front. I do love seeing ships and boats, real ones though.
The view from our holiday accommodation. We did have some nice weather.
Blackpool Sands - not the northern one, the Devon one! It's not actually sand either, it's shingle. Beautiful place, very quiet when we were there, steep parking charge though. Had a lovely lunch from the super café there:-
Bruschetta topped with roasted tomatoes and delicious rare roast beef, with a nice mix of leaves and potato salad with horseradish dressing, scrumptious.
The left side of the back garden (taken from bedroom window, forgive the glass reflection), showing the fruit bed. The raspberries, which OH thinned out quite dramatically last year, have taken over again and become a forest.
The right side. OH is going to construct another couple of raised beds in the middle grassy area for next year. We want more room to grow lots more peas, beans and squashes....I just love fresh peas especially.
On Wednesday we went to Portishead Marina for the afternoon, more lovely boats to look at. The tug that husband is standing watching was being refuelled, husband got chatting to the skipper who told him it holds 4000 litres and takes about an hour to fill it up!
