New Years Eve - Walk to Coleton Fishacre

Lynn and I decided to brave the end-of-year drizzle and try to burn off a mince pie or two by walking along the coast. We crossed the river, thank you Debs, and set off along a very muddy path. Although drizzly, it was quite warm and the coastal path to Brixham is renowned for it steep inclines. We made it as far as Coleton Fishacre before heading inland and back to Kingswear and a ferry home.

Julia's Shelves

The dinghy is now build (see Gypsy Sophia Blog) and the girls have skedaddled off to Portsmouth for a few days, so Lynn set me to doing a few home DIY jobs! The only problem is: no money = no materials!! However, our next door neighbours are having work done, including their floorboards being changed - so to save the builders having to dispose of said boards, they were shaped down on my saw bench and have become shelves in Julia's wardrobe.

One by one our family have visited us during the Christmas period. Firstly, Lydia returned from University after her first term away from home. She was closely followed by Hannah and Sophia. Hannah also brought along her 8 month old bump. Then on Christmas eve, Dan and Sarah together with Spooky and Deefur arrived just in time to see Christmas day in. 'Twas lovely to see them all.

Ten Tors December Training Walk

A lovely day on Saturday saw the Ten Tors training team completing a shortish walk on the Moors. One shower midday had the walkers scrabbling for waterproofs, but the sun soon appeared again.
