Postcards from Devon

Teigmouth Devon in winter

Devon. If ever there was a place we might escape the city from permanently I think it might have to be here. Every time we visit my heart does begin to wonder whether we could make that move, to live by the sea. I'd like to hope and dream that one day it could happen, as it would be such a big move! 

These photos are self explanatory, our day spent in Teignmouth visiting the pier a year after the big storms ripped half of it away, playing on the 2p machines til our hearts content, blowing bubbles in the wind along the bracing seafront and taking a little ferry with dogs for companions across to Shaldon. We ate lunch, hunted for shells and played on the beach before returning back across the ferry, Rob and I making our own way home walking through the village and back over the water to Teignmouth. It was a good day.

  1. Wow! These are such amazing photographs! They really look like they could be old film photos. I love all of those vintage arcade machines like the palm reading one etc. I remember them when i was younger and always wanted to go on them :) x

  3. I think you've captured Teignmouth and Shaldon really well there (husband's hometown). Shaldon is changing quite a bit in the trendy stakes but dear old Teignmouth retains a lot of old charm. Lush stuff.
