30 Days Wild - Days 8-12

Please pardon the hiatus in the blog, but we have been away.  The forecast looked good, work was finished, so we packed up the tent and headed to the South Hams.  We had 4 nights camping in Slapton, a short walk from the beach, an area that holds so many memories for me as my grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles live or lived there for many years. 

Here are a selection of our 'wild' experiences:

Birdwatching on Slapton Lea.

Minibeast hunting all over the place (we liked this mummy and baby snail 'cuddling'!).

Coastal walks and deserted beaches (this is Mattiscombe).

Exploring new paths at Start Point.

Creating art on stony beaches (a la Andy Goldsworthy).

Drawing in the sand.

Splashing in the surf.

 Imaginative play on the beach.

Examining (very carefully!) a dead jellyfish.

Travels by steam train and boat.

Admiring a stunning sunset.

Ted also climbed a tor on Dartmoor when we stopped for lunch there on our drive home, but my camera batteries had died by then.

What a great trip!
