Throw Back Thursday // Down in the West Country

As we tumble through autumn into the beginnings of winter I think longingly back to my weekend in the west country. Ah, May! Back when we thought it was going to be ‘a lovely summer’ rather than the 6 week, rain-free heatwave from hell it actually was. Still… I won’t complain about the weather I had that weekend. Nor the views.

A weekend in the West Country

At the weekend I took a very long drive down to Devon with the express purpose of visiting John Arbon Textiles for their open weekend. That Saturday morning didn’t disappoint at all.

Blakeney Seals

Last Friday my sister and I went on a little trip to the Norfolk coast to see the seals and it was wonderful. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for years and last week was the perfect weather for it. Blakeney Point is home to both Common and Grey seals and taking a boat trip is the only way to get close up to these seals in their natural habitat. There are several companies that take their boats out…
