The beach at South Sands, Salcombe.
I am fortunate to have been born and bred in this heavenly County of Devon, which is right down in the South West of England. We are surrounded by the sea, with the most wonderful sandy beaches, and we have Dartmoor very close by, so we have the best of both worlds.
Coastal path to Hope Cove, which is one of my favourite walks.
Devon is known for its narrow lanes and very high hedges, so that you just can't see what is coming in the opposite direction. No good coming here if you're not very good at reversing! It's quite funny watching the tourists sometimes .... or Emmits or Grockles, as we call them (in an affectionate way, of course 😳).

The beach at Inner Hope, Hope Cove
When I was a little girl, a favourite memory of mine was going out for a drive on a Sunday, picking primroses from the Devon banks, and bringing them home to put in a jam jar. Goodness me, life was so much simpler then. Mind you, I am talking about the early 1950's.

I only found out a few days ago that the primrose is the County flower of Devon, so I found that very interesting.
Well, I hope you've enjoyed the views I've picked for you today, and I shall post more in the weeks to come. As I mentioned, I consider myself blessed to be living in this beautiful little part of the world.
Have a good week everyone.
