Exmouth, UK (part one)

We arrived in Exmouth Saturday afternoon. Situated on the east coast of Devon, it gets its name from where the river Exe meets the sea. My brother in law’s family is from this area. They live in the British Virgin Islands and have already been here a week or so visiting with his side of the family. With Robert’s parents here from Vancouver, we decided to make the 3.5 hour train trip from London and spend some time by the seaside.

We are staying in a two floor rental just a few blocks from the city center. The views here are amazing, but staying across from a church whose bells ring on the hour is getting to be a bit much. Looking forward to moving in with the entire family at the end of the week to a three floor house on the marina!

My apologies for the lack of posts. Robert’s parents arrived last week and with us preparing for a two week mini break in Devon (home of the devonshire cream!), it has been a crazy and stressful few days. I have also been sewing like a mad person to get ready to participate in my first craft fair and unfortunately, all computer work has fallen by the wayside. I have limited internet access, but hope to spend the next few days playing catch up. I also have a few goodies that I want to share on the blog, so stay tuned. In the meantime, here are a few snapshots of around London from the past week.

Wishing you a happy weekend from Exmouth. Looking forward to a bank holiday filled with beach trips, ocean side ice cream and fish and chips!
