As a child I spent many happy hours on the beaches of South Devon but haven't actually been back since I was 16 (a long time ago). So today I returned to one of those childhood haunts where my Gran used to drink tea on the beach out of proper china and would have Devon ice cream with clotted cream on the top.
This is where we went.
With lovely coloured houses looking out to sea.
Fathers and Daughters walk along the sea front.
And the trains go right along the coast.
As a child I always looked to see the trains as my Gran's brothers were train drivers and would sound the horn if they knew we were there.
The cliffs are so red.
And the houses are old.
Well this one is anyway.
The streets are narrow.
And the river runs through the centre of town.
The weather wasn't as nice as I remember and the beach wasn't as big but it is a lovely old fashioned seaside town and I can see why it was my Mum's and Gran's favourite.
To change the subject
I have been counting down for a couple of weeks now and my 100th post is coming up so it is nearly time for a giveaway. I won't tell you now what it is going to be but I will give you a clue.
See you in a few days.
