As an antidote to the photographic diarrhoea brought on by digital photography and/or Facebook, I’ve challenged myself to tell you the story of our holiday using just one photo from each day. We’ve just returned from a lovely week-and-a-bit in Dorset/Devon, which started and finished with a wedding. Look on…
Day 1: a rainy journey down south.
Day 2: the wonderful Ed marries the lovely Emily!
Day 3: enjoying the trampoline of our kind hosts in Dorset, before moving on to Devon.
Day 4: a ride on the Seaton Electric Tramway. We saw cute rabbits and all sorts of birds en route!
Day 5: sitting by the sea at Budleigh Salterton.
Day 6: Taking a goat for a walk at the World of Country Life. (This was EXCELLENT. Much better than the flyer suggested. And plenty of things for our pre-school-aged kids to do.)
Day 7: playing croquet in the garden at A La Ronde. The house was designed by two female cousins, predominantly for them to display the things they’d brought back with them from their travels abroad, mainly shells. When not sticking shells onto walls, they managed to find time to evangelise and look after Messianic Jewish spinsters.
Day 8: I had to include this picture of Lyme Regis in the fog, complete with a good number of optimistic British holiday-makers. Were we mad? Or had we just checked the weather forecast? Within an hour, all the fog had cleared, and we were sitting underneath clear blue skies with a temperature of 20-25 degrees. As I’m only allowed one photo a day, you’ll have to imagine the scene.
Day 9: view of Beer, where we were staying, from the coastal path.
Day 10: The amazing Matt and Lizzy get married!
