A Walk in the Park

My friend Gabby and I constantly moan about how much we miss countryside walks at home with our doggies whilst were away, so when Gabby's parents went away for two weeks and  needed a dog sitter Gabby jumped at the chance.

We planned on just a coffee in one of the dog friendly cafe's in Royal William Yard, as we glanced over towards Mount Edgcumbe, it looked so Autumnly (not a real word, probably) idilic we couldn't resist hoping on the ferry and going for a stroll. 

The pub next to the ferry called out to us after our two hour walk around the park,  so delicious crab sandwiches and cider were a must.

Kitley House

Back in Plymouth for my final year of University, I have been reunited with my gal pal Helena and after a long summer break we had lots of catching up to do. 

A walk in the countryside and a fancy afternoon tea was just the ticket.

mmmmm scones...

Saunton Sands


From St Ives, we headed up to Devon to meet up with My Mum, Dad, My Sister Emma and her boyfriend Will (and my adorable doggies Monty and Harvey) to continue Birthday Celebrations. 

We headed to Saunton Sands for the day, we used to holiday in Devon every summer with a group of Family and Friends and would stay at the Saunton Sands Hotel. It was a bit of a family tradition as it was where my Dad and his Parents and Grandparents also used to stay. We haven't been back for years so it was lovely to go back and walk along the most gloriously long beach I know.

To re-live childhood memories we went up to the hotel after playing on the beach with the dogs and kites, for a delicious afternoon tea.
We then all parted ways and I headed back to University, bye bye summer, time to knuckle down for my final year at Uni... growing up happens so fast!!
