As temperatures soared around the longest day in June (#Joon17) in north Devon, it was too hot to work, too hot to sleep  and too hot to deal with the crowds who has swarmed to the coast in search of some relief from the humid conditions. There was only one option – a last minute […]

A Perfect Antidote ..
