Sunny Devon;-)



It might well be winter in the north of the country but

yesterday, in the south, we had a snippet of springtime!

And jolly nice it was too!




The sun was out in Exeter and it was very warm.

I felt positively overdressed in my winter coat!

It was a day for a long walk around my favourite city.

Come with me!




There's no finer place to be in Exeter

when the sun is visiting than Exeter Quay.




And since we last visited a new vintage shop has sprung up.

Did I say new vintage...?!





Plenty of choice here, for lovers of all things vintage and retro.









There's plenty going on down at the quay and when

the sun comes out, so do the people.
















I loved these garden items and the shadows they made on the door.




And one of these terraced houses, overlooking the quay,

would suit me fine!



We ambled back to the top of the town and almost collapsed

here ....







The fireplace, which is part of the bar, was certainly not needed

yesterday as the sweat was pouring off me as I downed

my drink .




Well deserved!



And a picture of contentment! ;-)

Looks like a cracker of a day, both weather and entertainment wise! Sadly it was grey and miserable here, but still, the days are getting longer and there's a definite feel of spring in the air!
