A Bit Of Calm

We are back from a lovely weekend in Devon. Much needed after such an awful week in London. It’s really funny (and nice) going back as a ‘tourist!’ All the things I took for granted before, especially visiting the coast, are suddenly very appealing as a Londoner! 
Anyway, Devon was relaxing and warm (with some looming grey clouds) but we managed a delicious picnic on Sidmouth beach and Bertie had his first paddle in the sea. He loved it! Maisie got completely soaked and had to wear Grandad’s shorts (ha), and we consumed the most delicious ice cream ever. 
Now we have a week without Maisie as she is having a little holiday at my mum’s in Devon, catching up with her old school friends. I miss her already. I hope you all enjoyed your weekends.

  3. It is funny how you don't appreciate a place where you live...until you move away from it and then go back to visit, isn't it?!! ^_^ That's happened to me a few times in my life too!

  4. Beautiful bleached beach images. The sea and the pebbles are just gorgeous. Oh lovely for Maisie, how cool is that for her to still keep in touch with her friends in Devon. She must be the coolest in their eyes, moving to the big smoke! Have a great week. Lou xx

    I feel very sad when I saw what happened in London ... unbelievable violence ... unbelievable human behaviours ... I hope London will be more quiet now ... and I wish you a lovely and calm week, to you and your family ! ^_^

  10. Gorgeous photos, looks like a lovely holiday. I miss Devon so much especially in the Summer. Croyde Bay used to be my regular surfing beach, in the old days!

  11. Gorgeous photos Kerry. It's lovely going back and seeing places with new eyes. I know how you feel about Maisie... Both my girls are away with friends and I'm missing them so much. Lovely that they have ever expanding circles though :) Kx
