The Glorious South West in Pictures

Hello again,

today I have decided to give you a brief view of my history in the Southwest, all in pictures; I hope you enjoy them.

Firstly Rock in Cornwall where I was born

now on to one of my favourite haunts as a child, and I often visit as an adult - Padstow, just across the water from Rock

one of my most favourite beaches of all time - Daymer Bay, not far from Rock and so unspoilt

and just behind Daymer Bay is the glorious St Enodoc church which was buried under the sand for many years, and dug out by the local people, and the vicar

I grew up in a small Mid-Devon town Tiverton

and went to the local Grammar school

now on to my teenage years, this is the sort of thing we got up to - raft races down the river Exe

then at 22 I got married, the reception was held at The Fisherman's Cot at Bickleigh

 I then went on to have 3 children, all born at Heavitree Hospital

I now live near the city of Exeter

but with the most beautiful countryside right next door - here's one of our local dog walking sites - Ashclyst Forest

I have the moors either side of me, to the North Exmoor

and to the south Dartmoor

and finally a 'less nice' side of Devon - work! I work for a company that looks after the trunk roads, and this is what we deal with in the winter - Haldon Hill

I hope you enjoyed that snap shot of my life

Signing off for today

  3. you're welcome, its a beautiful part of the country. The church is a favourite of mine, was truly dug put of the sand, many times before it was finally restored, (the storms kept covering it up again, ) the vicar died before it was restored, and people used to climb in the window behind the altar, through the sand dunes to get married.
