4 of 5
Our holiday included three small connected families - including a nine year old, a toddler and a teenager plus 2 dogs. As the weather was changeable, we made out own entertainment from beachcombing and collecting seaglass to rockpooling, dog walking and exploring the area. As one of our company has been very poorly lately, we were determined to have fun. This involved two pirate nights where we dressed up and generally enjoyed ourselves! Duncan cooked delicious meals including a thai curry and we woke to the smell of freshly baked bread most mornings. We set off with enthusiasm for a longish walk to the Mount Edgecombe estate via Port Picklecombe - the cocker spaniel , Charley, & golden retriever, Sonny ,really relished the walk. The dramatic scenery was spectacular and the mounting storm clouds even more so! Eventually a full-blown electrical storm saw us all running for the cover and warming coffee of the Edgecombe stables coffee shop! Some of our group then chickened out by returning in a taxi! On Monday evening we ordered pizza takeaways from the nearby shop - I think we over ordered but we had cold pizza slices for our beach picnic the next day. A beach we liked was Port Wrinkle - it was warm that day and we all went in for a swim- quite an achievement with ages ranging from 17months to 76. All in all a good holiday - we hope to return to this lovely area and Blue Monkey soon.
