Well, we have now been living in Devon for about a month. Have we enjoyed it? Oh yes! Is it different? Very!
You have to plan ahead more. This is mainly because we are now a bit remote and don’t have shops on our dropstep any more.
What we do have on our doorstep though, makes up for it!
We have lots of open space.
which has made for some great sunsets, which are either just outside my front door, or a little walk around the village.
The dark night skies have enabled me to experiment a bit more with my night photography. I can take them from the back garden and although there is a street light in the distance I can turn a little to remove any light from the photo. I’ve included a little light in this one as I think it adds to the photo.
One of the main reasons we chose where we now are, was its location. We are quite close to all sorts of places, the Moors and the coasts. So we have been out exploring.
The rough sea and rocks of Bude are very dramatic
And next to Bude, Widemouth Bay, which is also very impressive, (I’ve added more Widemouth Bay photos to the Landscapes Galleries)
and Westward Ho! which took us totally by surprise.
Finally, one of the Moors, which I have to admit I have been most excited about visiting. We went to Dartmoor, or should I say the very edge of it.
It was still impressive and I think the first time I have seen close up or crossed a dam.
So, exploring our new area is definitely fun and is going to be a great adventure!
