Combesgate candy

One of the best walks around Woolacombe at the moment is; up the donkey path to Twitchen wood and back down by the stream. Short, sweet and full of colour. The bluebells are the divas of the show but there are strong supporting roles, not least the heady smells and bright white flowers of the […]

That day, in the bay.

March 10, 2021

Devon-date 27/02/21. It’s a day we will remember for a long time, a top contender for day of the winter. Super clean long range swell kissed by gentle offshores. Big but handleable if you didn’t get caught out, blue skies and arctic temperatures. The little bay looking g(r)ate.. Rights into the pipe. A few lefts […]

Woolacombe sunsets are a photographers dream. Big skies, big beach, big sand dunes and big tides. Foreground interest (usually dogs), mid ground (crashing waves or rocks at combesgate) and background – the magnificent light thrown up as our planet rotates away from the star that gives life to our galaxy. Here are a few of […]

More Moor Meanderings

August 27, 2020

It’s the end of summer and here’s the the way August has played out so far with warm downpours and gusty blows. In-between times there’s been big skies and solitary walks up on the moor. A reminder to all locals that you can escape the traffic jams, the Georgeham double decker bus queue, the Mortehoe […]

Giant Deadly Flamingo Sunsets

Untitled (Giant Deadly Flaming Flamingos)   As lockdown slowly eases, And our splendid isolation is breached. By hordes of infected second-home owners, And their flamingo rings at the beach:  We anxiously await the second-wave of contagion. Not by some valkyrie or eeauch.  But by some  Condescending men with Audis and shorts, coloured peach .   With […]

And I feel fine

While all this Covid ineptitude is going down by our government, life goes on in this beautiful village that I am lucky live in on the North Devon coast. There’s no visitors, which makes for a mahooosive difference. It’s great for us to enjoy our home, but for many of my friends who run seasonal […]
