Birthday Weekend Day 3, Seaside!

My actual birthday was Sunday and after a mix of gardens, music and culture in the fresh air it was time for a day beside the sea. Brixham in south Devon is a small fishing town, popular with tourists and I hadn’t been for years. Here are some photos for you.

I had forgotten, but even as a child Brixham has had a famous ship in its harbour, well a full size replica. It’s the Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drakes vessel, so as I posted about the man himself a few days ago I had to show you.

She’s lovely but I don’t think I’d want to travel the world in her, would you?

  1. What a wonderful place to go for your birthday, Gilly. The photos look so atmospheric with those dark clouds.

    Sounds like you celebrate birthdays like I do, dragging them out for as long as possible! Continue to enjoy the treats as long as you can. Happy birthday!

  2. I love water-side towns and villages. These pictures are colourful and the Sir Francis Drake? Wow!
    At our house, we all celebrate for three days: the actual day, a celebration with close family and another celebration with friends.
