No place like home................


Sunday morning.  Beautiful weather, amazing view.  Leisurely breakfast.  Off to catch a boat across Tor Bay to the fishing town of Brixham just visible in the distance.

This is my home.  Torquay, South Devon.  Looking out across the bay to the English Channel.  What could be more perfect?


Internet was not available during the week in the Lake District.  I'll have lots of glorious scenery to show you later.  Think green, very green..........thousands of newborn lambs, tidy villages, castles, long clean lakes, rhododendrons as tall as oak trees, flowers in full bloom, showers and sun, Beatrix Potter's home, Peter Rabbit in her garden......and a day in bonnie Scotland.
