Devon Day 4; Blackchurch Rock

Black church Rock

One of the main things I was looking forward to seeing whilst in Devon was Blackchurch Rock. I was looking forward to getting their at sunrise/sunset (depending on where the sun was) and getting some epic shots.

Unfortunately the tides weren’t really on our side the week we were there, so I did the best I could which was get there a couple of hours before sunset and hope the tide wasn’t too far in.

The walk down was lovely, through a bluebell forest which little fairy bridges crossing over the stream. By this point we had been discussing if we were blubelled out. It turns out I wasn’t.

Even though the tide was coming it (Sunset was at 830, high tide at 10) I did manage to get some good shots, even if they weren’t the shots I was hoping for.

Devon Day 3; Wet and Windy!

Day 3 is where the weather rook a bit of a turn and instead of glorious summertime like sunshine, we went to full blown April weather; rain, wind and cold!

Welcombe beach

Despite all of this, the weather in the morning was supposed to be better than the weather in the afternoon, so I insisted we go to Welcombe Beach. Unfortunately the morning was also high tide, so we were a bit limited with what we could do whilst we were there.

Devon Day 2; Hartland Quays

Somewhat out of order in terms of blog posting! But! Better late than never…? On day 2 in Devon we went to Hartland Quays, and then to Speke’s Mill Waterfall.

Very nice it was there too. The walk from the Quays was pleasant, and then the beach was cool as well, some caves and the bottom of the waterfall and some interesting rock formations.

Devon, Day 1

On Day 1 it was very hot. We decided to do part of the Coastal Path, we set off from Horn’s Cross and walked to Buck’s Mill.

It was a great surpise though as there were bluebells everywhere on the coastal path!

We then went back on ourselves and tried to get to Peppercombe, but it was a bit too hot and we’d been out for 3 and a half hours walking up and down, so we decided to call it quits and went back to the hotel.
