SUMMERS PAST AND GONE.

Todays blog is a selection of Seaside pictures all taken during this year on our travels. Most of these pictures were taken during the summer months, I did think about keeping this post back to perhaps brighten up our full Winter days, then I thought knowing my memory I will forget and never do it, so then here it is. The first one then was taken just a fortnight ago in Croyde Bay with Sue sitting at a table at our favorite Cafe. This cafe is situated overlooking Croyde bay and beach at the baggy point end of this hugely popular surfing village. They serve great Tea, coffee, Sandwiches, Baguettes, and basket meals, what better a place to take your snacks while watching the surf.
Please do click on any picture to enlarge it.
This picture was taken during a bike ride to Cornwall and is of Fistral Beach at Newquay. This beach is probably the surf centre of Cornwall.
Another beach in Cornwall (Below), again taken during a bike ride this time of the famous resort of Perranporth. Click on it to see just how popular it really is
Below, again of Perranporth beach, with the Millenium Sundial in the foreground,this sundial points across the bay to Gull Rocks.
Much nearer to home (below) taken from the steps of the "Landmark Theatre" Cafe, in Ilfracombe, N Devon.
The shot below was taken just last sunday, we tried to capture the mist as it rose over the cliffs overlooking "Lynmouth", it hung there all day refusing to either thicken or disperse.
This shot captures the lovely little secluded beach at "Lee bay" nr "Ilfracombe", N Devon. The labrador was dieing to leap in after sticks his lady owner was throwing but for ages lacked the courage, eventually "Taking the plunge" after what seemed ages.
One here for "Ex Shammy", this shot of "Combe Martin" (Shammick) was taken from the Tea garden of the "Sandy Cove" hotel.One of the bungalows in the centre of the picture was once owned by her family. The 2nd large hill on the left is called "Hangmans hill" Sue and I climbed this a few weeks ago and will be the subject of a Winter blog.

This shot (below) if I remember rightly was taken from the road leading toward "Porlock" again in dear old Devon.
So i hope that has given you a bit of a "Summer Feeling", with some lovely places to visit here in the West country. We certainly feel very privileged to be able to spend our summers in this lovely area.
Now to come back to earth with a bump, this Video was taken just TWO weeks ago on the day we went to "Hartland Quay", it was taken right by the side of the car in "Westward Ho", blimey what a difference.



Joke of the day.

A chicken farmer went to a local bar... He sat next to a woman and ordered a glass of champagne.

The woman perks up and says, 'How about that? I just ordered a glass of champagne, too!'

'What a coincidence,' the farmer says, 'This is a special day for me, and I too am celebrating.'

'This is a special day for me too, I'm also celebrating!' says the woman.

'What a coincidence,' says the man.

As they clinked glasses, the farmer asked, 'What are you celebrating?'

'My husband and I have been trying to have a child, and today my gynaecologist told me that I'm pregnant!'

'What a coincidence,' says the man. 'I'm a chicken farmer and for years all my hens were infertile, but today they're finally laying fertilized eggs.'

'That's great!' says the woman, 'How did your chickens become fertile?'

'I used a different cock,' he replied.

The woman smiled and said,

'What a coincidence...'

Lovely photos, Bob! People I know who have been to Cornwall all sing its praises.
Love the joke too..sounds like one of Kevin's! Not surprised you know of him over there; if Prince Charles is a fan, old Kev must be fairly well known in the UK!!
Hey did you see the photo of my hubby on his Suzuki with his mate on the Harley? They were on my blog last week, the day of the GP at Phillip Island. I was hoping you would spot them.

Lovely pictures. We've been to Porlock, and it's a very steep road down. You can smell the brakes burning at the bottom. Fortunately we've got a Landrover Discovery lol
