Christmas Day was an unusually quiet affair in our house with just my husband, his mother and me. Our real festive time begins later today when Mr, Mrs and Miss Brit arrive from Bristol and Millie and her Mummy and Daddy arrive from Oxford. At present they are all stuck in traffic on the motorway, leaving me with a few minutes to post some pictures.
Boxing Day was a perfect day for a stroll on the beach. My dear friend D came over from her icy valley to share some festive food, sunshine and conversation. We went to Crow Beach, one of the local beaches that I haven't written about before because we like to keep it secret but I'll share it with you as it is Christmas! D has posted some of the great pictures she took over here.
Crow Point and beach are on the estuary of the Taw and Torridge rivers, at the edge of Braunton marshes.
Across the water is Instow
D's handsome Edinburgh Boy was quite happy with the sand and sea until he spotted the wreck
Excellent sniffing ground!
And what could be better than finding a wreck to explore?
Finding another one. At first, D and I thought we might be able to head off to a life of adventure on the high seas in this one but a closer inspection of the interior suggested that would be unwise...
The family arrived before I finished writing this post so I'm just going to click on Publish Post without editing or completing it. Tomorrow we are all going further round the coast to Morwenstow. More pictures to follow.
