Our family summer holiday was a trip to South Devon. Just like last year (post here), we stayed in a caravan park which offered lots of activities for the kids, as well as being close to beaches. The weather on the first day was wet, however, we didn’t let that stop us from having a picnic whilst watching steam trains pass-by. Fortunately, the weather picked up quite considerably and by the middle of the week we had been swimming in the River Teign and the English Channel!
The week was dominated by the National Trust with us visiting a number of local houses, gardens and castles. As luck would have it each place we visited had a cafe and offered cream tea – which of course we duly obliged in purchasing!!
The photos posted here are only a snapshot with the aim of giving you a taste of what we got up to and what the South Devon area has to offer. The full set are posted on my flickr site.
At the weekend I had the pleasure of joining Mr & Mrs Cakes (she of Shoreditch Bakes fame!) for a weekend trip to North Wales. Apart from being a nice break from the norm, the main reason for the visit was for Mr & Mrs Cakes to tackle the Snowman Triathlon. Now I’m not an expert at triathlons so all I’m going to say is that the water looked mighty cold and the hill/mountain looked ominously steep. However, I am sure Mrs Cakes will do a full review of the event in time – so keep checking her site. *edit* here is the link to Mrs Cakes blog of the Snowman Tri
I was asked to take some piccies of the day – a kinda journal of the how the day panned out. Below are some collages of various images but if you want to see the full size images then head over to my flickr site.
