Accidental blog holiday and Lorna Doone

I took an accidental blogging holiday due to a poorly computer which took way longer than I expected to be fixed. This led to major withdrawal symptoms I can tell you. And the photos I wanted to show you just kept piling up becoming just too many to face. Christmas, New Year, Valentines...

It was all good.

Having some time unplugged was kind of nice though and gave me some time to think about what I'd like to do with my blog. And all this ended up with a bit of a blog make over. With a new name and pages and everything...

Oooh exciting!

So grab a cuppa and take a look around. I hope you enjoy and stay a while...

This half term we went to visit family in Woolacombe which was so much fun but went way too quickly for my liking.

By far the highlight of the whole trip was our trip to Exmoor National Park. We walked a part that is known as Lorna Doone Country...

It is a wild and woolly place...




And we only saw a fraction of it really.

Isaac was determined to find some wild ponies or a herd of deer...
He desperately searched high and low...
Whereas Lucas was just happy to bounce around seeing what's what...

Luckily Isaac didn't have to wait too long for his wild animals...

Completely wild and free. It doesn't get better than that...

Actually it did, we saw a herd of deer running by in the distance but I was too excited to get a picture. Isaac was beyond happy though.

Why hello magical valley...
We enjoyed finding you.

Yep we NEED to come back here and explore this place some more. I also really want to read Lorna Doone...

  5. SO beautiful- such wide open spaces...I can see the wind. Gorgeous scenery and sweet horses. Great to see the kiddos stretch out like that.
