Snapshots of a coastline – Devon, Cornwall

My family has called Devon home for just over a year now. We were never one for visiting the area on summer holidays when I was a kid, bar one or two caravan holidays in Cornwall, so I never really understood the wild romanticism and the dreamy sighs were about. I’d been brought up near Scarborough, so let’s just say I’m not the first to line up to visit a British seaside town.

But my family’s new base on the border with Devon and Cornwall has given us a chance to explore the area and, well, I have to concede to everyone’s point. It’s bloody gorgeous.

So here’s a little pictorial tour of some of the parts of Devon and Cornwall that I’ve seen and loved.

Those black spots in the waves are surfers. Crazy, one and all. St Agnes, Cornwall.

Sea air means you can eat as much cake as you want, especially this gluten free lemon cupcake. 
If you need to catch the ferry from Rock to Padstow, here’s the place to do it.

Rain and fogs make things more romantic, I always think. Dartmouth.

Does anyone have a favourite part of the Devon or Cornish coast?
