May Brixham Trip

01Jun

I took my mum for her first trip to Forget-Me-Knot Cottage last week and she absolutely loved it!  She was amazed by the view from the top room and loved sitting looking out to the harbour, we sat and watched the harbour bustle during the day and listened to the bells at night.  I added a few new items to the cottage which I am sure some of our regulars will notice – my favourite being the Golden Hind replica ship that I found at Totnes Hippy market for a bargain £20!  It was dusty and dirty but after a good clean it now has pride of place in the top room where you can see the full size replica ship in the bay!

Mostly we went exploring lots of different beaches and coves, we walked Berryhead and St Marys Bay, took the Battery Gardens coastal path to Fishcombe Cove and onto Broadsands Beach and made the scenic walk across to Elberry Cove and spent the afternoon basking in the May sunshine.  I got some beautiful photographs, the coastline is so picturesque.

We enjoyed some lovely lunches too at Churston Court, Fat Lemons in Totnes and The Old Market House at Brixham Harbour.  Neither of us wanted to come home! But I had guests arriving, so until the next trip …. 😉
