Weekend in Devon

Well its been a busy week. We have been busy posting off our eBay sales, details of which I will share later. We travelled down to Devon after work on Friday. It took quite a while as there was an accident but we arrived about an hour later then normal. On Saturday we were out all day. We started by taking the children to the park, they played for ages and the weather was great. Then off to the beach where they played for a long time , paddling and looking for things on the beach. We had a stroll round the shops then off for a drive to a nearby village called Beer. We had fish and chips for lunch and then to the beach at Beer. Afterwards we visited the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary. This is free to visit and the donkeys roam around the place so the children can get up close. The children really enjoyed this and got to learn lots of donkey facts. That evening we had a meal out and a stroll along the beach afterwards. We had a really good day and other than food, didn't spend any money entertaining ourselves. The next day was awful weather, raining hard. The children went swimming and had a good time splashing around. After lunch we made our way back home, the weather was still dreadful and we got home in about 3 hours which isn't too bad. We hope to go back to Devon in the summer holidays. The children had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I managed to steer myself away from the numerous tea shops despite the cake calling me!
