Towards the end of August Rob and I enjoyed our annual family holiday. We stayed in a lovely house in Croyde Bay, Devon with my parents, my sister, her husband and the three nephews. Then afterwards, Rob and I travelled on to Cornwall to visit our friends who moved down there a couple of years ago, and camped in the van for two nights on their farmland.
It was a wonderful nine days away and a lovely end to what has been a really good summer. I have been really lucky this year – I went away in March to the New Forest and have also managed to squeeze in lots of camping trips this summer. And that’s despite of Robs shoulder injury and me working weekends!
Sadly, this was probably my last camping trip of the season, as its starting to get colder and more damp now. And lets not talk about how I now have no annual holiday leave left from work until the next holiday year starts in 2016 (sob)!!
Our time in Devon involved lots of bike rides, lots of body boarding, amazing sunsets, hikes in stunning scenery and the usual over consumption of cream teas, fudge, ice cream, chips and alcohol.
It was our first time in the county and we fell in love with the area. We will definitely be going back again as north Devon ticks all the boxes for us – plenty of activities to do, stunning countryside and spectacular beaches!
Here are some of my favourite photos from our week. Some are taken by Rob with his DSLR, some are from our Instagram feeds and some are from our phones. Im sure you will be able to tell which are which!
After seven lovely days, the family all drove back home to Kent, and Rob and I headed in the opposite direction towards Cornish land to visit our friends for their annual bank holiday BBQ fundraiser weekend in aid of the local school. The event involved lots of drinking, talking, a chilli eating challenge (more on those chilli’s on here soon!), pulled pork and pulled beef eating and then some more drinking. We didn’t take many pictures as I was too busy drinking and Rob was too busy scoffing the pulled meat*, but here are some from our phones.
