Bank Holiday Weekend

We have been out and about quite a lot recently and work has been rather hectic meaning that this Blog has taken rather a back seat. Over the May Bank Holiday weekend (last weekend in May for any overseas readers - are there any readers out there??) Julia and I went down to our holiday lodge in Devon. The weather, as always, deteriorated for the holiday but we still managed a very enjoyable relaxing time. We went for one walk upstream along the banks of teh River Teign to Fingle Bridge Inn. The bluebells were out and it was really lovely.

  Flowers along the river bank
We also went to the seaside town of Beer, this is a small very picturesque town.

Much to our surprise it boasts two very good art galleries. I was tempted by a Bob Crooks vase but resisted the impulse. Bob Crooks is one of my favourite glass makers/blowers and we do have a couple of his small (cheaper) pieces.
All in a ll a very good short break.
