Back from Holiday

Hello all, anybody miss me?  Well, we are now back from our holiday to Devon - me, OH and the dogs.  We stayed in a beautiful self catering cottage in the middle of nowhere, with no mobile phone signal or internet - very refreshing, and the water supply from a well.  We travelled daily and saw quite a lot of Devon and Cornwall during our stay.  Here is Custer on a lovely beach in Bude, he loved it - I think this is his fave place so far.
Having said that he did rather like Woolacombe too..

Devon is a truly beautiful place, if like me you love the coast and harbour's - was the best time of year for us too, as we are not big fans of the heat (as you know).  We did not actually get an awful lot of good weather, we saw a lot of rain.. must be what makes the place so beautiful.
This is Ilfracombe..
The top picture was Jaja and I at Newquay.  We were a bit on the ambitous side taking our new rescue dog Custer on holiday, it was not the easiest of things as he is rather a difficult dog still... so lead walking in small coastal towns was not ideal, he did spend rather a lot of time in the car with one of us, whilst we took turns at having a look around.  When we could find a dog friendly beach for him to run on all was well.  Jaja on the other hand is very easy, but then he is now 10!  He takes everything in his stride, here he is at Newquay.
I did not get much of a chance for art, despite taking it all with me in a small (ish) packed case, I did one journal page, and one painting using my watercolours... cant wait to get back to it when things get back to normal, still sorting out pics and washing etc.

Back to normal soon hopefully....


  1. Yes, I missed you! Looks like you had a great time - such a beautiful part of the world and I'm glad it wasn't too hot!
    Love the pictures of Jaja and Custer, both are gorgeous. Hopefully Custer will be as well behaved as Jaja one day :)

  2. Thanks Dawn, I hope so too - but we have over 8 years before he is as old as Jaja, eeeeeeeeeek.
