Wonderful 5 days in Devon - my favourite place in the world

Ilfracombe, our lovely family holidays were spent here - many a year - and Woolacombe, didn't get back to Woolacombe this year though, wish we had, but didn't have enough time and did a lot of sightseeing this year - came home refreshed and really enjoyed it.

Clovelly, of course, my legs were wobbly going down and I ruined a new pair of shoes into the bargain - coming back up, a bit out of puff but not too bad. Don't think I shall ever go again, again it was quite boring having no one around really.

Didn't stay long in Appledore, again it was so very quiet, but we went beginning of September and their season had already finished according to the shopkeepers.

A walk along the beachfront at Lynton - and by the river which was really flowing - a picnic by the side of the river, all in all a lovely day.

The Lynmouth/Lynton rail - up the hill, fantastic how this works, by water replacement, so clever for all those years ago.

this was simply scrumptious, but I gained 4lb's whilst away to add to the other 5lb's I have gained from previous hoidays and bad weekends, got to knuckle down now and do something about my weight again.

Instow - Loved it as a kid, pretty drab and dreary the late afternoon we went, but it brought back lots of lovely memories of mom and dad and times gone by
