It was chucking it down when we arrived in Dartmouth at around 1.30pm last Friday but as always Norton Park was a welcoming site…we were staying at one of the chalets on the site for a few days to relax & enjoy the quite that it always offers, whatever the time of year. We settled in & soon forgot about the weather & just chilled out in the chalet for the afternoon.
Saturday…well rain in the morning & a late breakfast but it soon brightened up & we when out & about in Dartmouth, a good walk, shopping etc…fuelled by several takeaway lattes’. Dartmouth was beautiful as ever..we just seem to feel right at home whenever we get there & it’s a very comforting feeling. A nice bottle of Red in the chalet in the evening was all we really wanted…& a meal of course!, what I mean is we were happy to just relax & enjoy the quite on our own, after all, this is what we came away for…then slept well!
Sunday was glorious…the sun streaming through the chalet (south facing) & we enjoyed a good breakfast in the sun, well behind glass anyway..but it was surprisingly warm for November! We took the short drive out to Blackpool Sands later in the morning. If you’ve never been to Blackpool Sands (the one in Devon without the fun fair of course) it’s certainly not to be missed if you get down to the South Hams area, it really is stunning…at this time of year the car parking is free although the shop, cafe & very nice toilets are all open. There were lots people walking on the beach & along the woodland trail, all enjoying a glorious November Sunday – doesn’t get much better than this!!
Another great day on Monday when we went to Slapton Sands & Torcross, then to the trip back up the M5 & home…well all things have to come to an end eh!, we’ll be back soon though that’s for sure!!
