A Full Week...

So this week is definitely a tale of two halves!!!


On Monday, we packed up out Rover 100, and started our journey down the A361, for our holiday at Twitchen House Holiday Park, in Mortehoe, North Devon, for a four night holiday.


This was also the start of our research and first few paragraphs of our book, looking at the A361, and of course taking a well deserved break.


We explored Ilfracombe, Barnstaple and Braunton.


We walked around Crow Point, and found the American Training Ground for the D-Day Landing and the little memorial dedicated to those who lost their lives on that fateful day.

We also met up with our friends Sue and Ron, who we have known for many years, but as they live in North Devon we only get to meet up when we are in their neck of the woods, or when they are in ours.


We had a lovely meal at The Cedars Inn, which was a Greene King. If you are a vegetarian, like me, they do a really great Fish-less and Chips - so you don't feel like you are missing out!!!

Whilst in Ilfracombe, we walked around the Harbour, and saw Verity, the controversial statue designed by Damien Hirst.


However, if you come away from the Harbour and walk up the steep Capstone Hill, you can see Ilfracombe on one side and the Bristol Channel, with Wales visible on clear days too.


Up on the hill, there is also a small statue that is a dedication to a young girl called Kate, who sadly lost her life after falling from the nearby cliff at Hillsborough.

Whilst this statue is a poignant reminder that life is too short, we have to take everyday as a gift, spend it with our loved ones and enjoy our lives doing what we all love doing.


For me, it is going on walks, exploring places, and capturing those moments the best we can, with the person I love being with...

On Friday, we left Mortehoe, and drove back to our base in Swindon. We then swapped over from the Rover 100 to our Ford Transit TravelHome, as we had to drive to Stratford-upon-Avon, to attend the International Campervan Show and Adventure Overlander Show. Plus, I volunteered my time to help steward.


So keep a look out for our videos, for our time away in North Devon, plus the highlights from the show.
