I am remembering last week when we had a few days of blissful Autumn-tinged old-fashioned adventure.
Although, you wouldn't really think it was mid September on the beach last Thursday!
We spent the day at Exmouth, I haven't been there for a long time.
But I loved it, it's practically pickled in the past, with plenty of old-fashioned seaside charm.
We picked mussels from the shoreline and ate them for tea..
We pootled around in swan boats - a beautiful black swan boat to be exact.
And walked around the shops, I was particularly taken by this window display. If you look carefully, you can spot me!
I spotted this on the way back from Exmouth. I really want to go up in it. It's like a stationary hot-air balloon. Weirdly modern yet retro.
The next day, we took a steam train to Dartmouth.
Doesn't this cafe on the station look wonderful? Straight out of the late 1940s.
I found a new love, giant ice cream cones! Three in two days!
We walked through woods, by canals, and fed swans (no beautiful black ones though sadly.)
I'll have to store these days up in my memory, like a squirrel storing nuts for the winter...
