A Week in Devon (Part Two)

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 3 - 2012

Ok, I promise – enough with the holiday photos after this and back to the regular beauty stuff.  I’ve got to pull myself out of my post-holiday hangover anyway and get back into my usual routine, why is it always so hard to get going again?

Some of the other highlights of our week included a visit to a working glass & games factory called The House of Marbles, comparing the two distinctly different coastlines of North and South Devon, eating fish and chips on the quayside in Brixham, and climbing up Haytor for a magnificent view over Dartmoor!

“Have you taken it yet? I’m getting some strange looks up here!”

Brixham’s replica of The Golden Hind

A very ropey-looking sandcastle!

It could almost be Santorini right?

Yeah, I know you’re cute.
Torquay Harbour

fishing stuffs

life preserver at Babbacombe

next time, I’d like some tea in my tea please?

who else loves paperweights? just me then…

all cafes/restaurants should provide colouring books and crayons, amen.

heart-shaped cream tea!

banister baubles!

yeah, I know… sad.  I COULDN’T STOP MYSELF!

pretty sand at Croyde Bay

Just wanna say a big thanks again for the tips and suggestions you gave me on places to visit, you’ve probably recognised most of them from the photos – talk about a holiday leech!  If you’re ever planning on visiting Winchester/Portsmouth/Southampton/New Forest – I’m your girl to reciprocate the favour!

Are you going anywhere for Easter Weekend?

    Lovely photos. My in laws are in Brixham so I’m often to be found wandering around there. Did you go along the break water? I get palpitations doing it with the kids. Stressy mummy!

    Very upset you didn’t come see us in the historic town of Exeter, the birthplace of Charles Dickens no less! 😉

    Glad you had a lovely holiday though, Devon is lovely, especially when you get the weather you had! x

  3. Christy says:

    Oh, your pix are just so pretty. Loving the one of your man and your daughter. She is the cuteness!! xxx

  4. Paris B says:

    Sigh.. even prettier pictures than the first, if it was even possible. You’ve had me spend a whole afternoon researching the 17-50mm >.<

  6. Gorgeous photos! I get your blog posts via rss on my work email (lunchtime reading, mmk?) and I forwarded yesterday’s post to my boyfriend to say YES YES GOING HERE so I love that you’ve put another one up. Devon looks delightful!

  7. Vik says:

    I liked the last two posts a lot better than the purely cosmetic-related posts. Do you have a photography blog? Really nice photos!

  8. Alexandra says:

    Thank you for sharing the love! You are such a talented girl, and your daughter so adorable.

  9. You are a bloody BRILLIANT photographer! These are terrific. And Leila is an absolute peach, bless her. xx

  10. Leah says:

    Wonderful photographs! I’m dying for a holiday and lusting over your snaps is filling a gap! xoxo

    Looks stunning, can’t wait til I’m down in August. As soon as I saw Haytor I was like “Haytors gonna hate”, but I’m a ridiculous person.

  12. Lovely pics! Salivating over that cream tea as well! Is that a Peppa Pig tshirt, if so I need to find one just like it for my daughter! She is obsessed with Peppa!

    Absolutely love your URL in the sand! We’d all do it :)
