What We Did Last Week: 3 [Aug. 3rd, 2009|12:12 pm]
Tony Grist
The next day (Wednesday) it rained and rained and rained- and the car got filthy from bumping over unimportant Exmoor roads. We were going to Ilfracombe, where we had  booked into a dispiriting family hotel which Ailz immediately christened "Lurch's Place". Actually it wasn't so bad; there was a time when all English hotels were similarly dank and gloomy. Besides, it was cheap.

Ilfracombe is lively- and the north Devon coast spectacular. The Landmark Theatre - which is built to look like a couple of sandcastles side by side- has a cafe where they serve really good sandwiches.

in the evening the sun came out and we drove along the coast and were glad we'd come after all.

I like the green hills by the water. Lovely!

That's Hele Bay. I don't know how that's pronounced. It could be Heel or Hella or even Healey.

OH this is beautiful! I want to show my mother this picture, she has never seen the English coast but has a very strong attachment to it.

All that part of the coast is coves and cliffs and ragged rocks. Very spectacular!

Thank you for the Devon coast. Especially with the setting light on it; it's beautiful.

It was a magical evening- an hour of sunshine after a perfectly filthy day.

Oh my, that's beautiful! And I'd say that the coastal light more than made up for the hotel's darkness.
I like the slant of the hills very much and the green and earth and sea contrast. Beautifully composed photo!

Thank you.

The hotel wasn't really so bad- just "old-fashioned". :)

Stop posting these pretty pictures, you're making me homesick.
