Our Devonshire Weekend



We're just home from an impromptu long weekend in North Devon. One of our friends was there a couple of weeks ago and loved it, my husband has been telling me for years about how nice this corner of the country is, and you know how much I love off-season breaks - so with the minimum of planning, off we went.

North Devon coastline

It was a truly beautiful spring weekend, and we had so many little adventures which deserve (and will, in good time, get) posts of their own. But the basic story was one of long coastal walks, and cream teas in friendly cafes, and quiet evenings of editing my novel. It was in all respects a wonderful holiday. Too short a time, of course, but any good trip leaves you wanting more!

We also took Androcles II on his first holiday, an experiment in viewing the world from the perspective of a small green rabbit:

My husband photographed me as I tried to get down to Peep-level! (Possibly one of the better photos of me, since it features only my fingers and boots...)

Spot the photographer...

Can you tell he's looking forwards to his next adventure?

i LOVE that peep picture - can't wait to see more (how long will he...umm...there's no way to say it delicately...how long will he last before he sort of falls apart and disintegrates?)

First, I love impromptu breaks. Second, beautiful pictures. Third - LOVE your peep! So cute.

I had completely forgotten how beautiful England can be.

Maybe I shouldn't spend every visit in Tesco's and go take a good look at some bits of it next time I pop over.

Do they have a huge Tesco's in Devon ?

Your green rabbit will be like the gnomes in "Amelie". Can't wait to see when it is on top of the Tour Eiffel.

Tortuga said...

Peep level! Awesome!

I have to wonder how edible your little friend is, or should I said, isn't?

Isn't it neat to see things from different perspectives!?

Darlene said...

I enjoyed your blog and photos. I'm afraid a Peep wouldn't last too long if I took one on vacation with me!

Blissed-Out Grandma said...

Nice photos, and I love the whimsical touch of including the Peep. It's always good to have a sense of humor!
