Last week (actually more than a week) the weather gods favored England. And how. A real heatwave with day after day of blue skies, hot sun and some cooling breezes (winds, actually). We were fortunate to be able to spend the entire week in Devon and the photos on Flickr show that the weather was indeed glorious. Plenty of time on the beach and, after a few days of thinking about it, many dips into the ocean! The warmest water was at Wembury Bay where we swam off the rocks into sheltered coves, lingering in crystal clear waters. Back in Easy Devon the water was just about OK for a quick swim - we can expect warmer waters later in the year.
We also managed a few hikes, doing the East Devon travelogue hike from Salcombe to Branscombe. While on this hike I had the idea of creating another Focalplane blog, this time to allow updates and comments on each of the travelogues. So this will not so much be a diary as a forum. I hope it takes off!
