Beer Beach

The craft fair season has begun and today I’ve been to a regular venue at Beer, in east Devon. It was a glorious spring day with a cool breeze coming off the sea, and lovely for  a stroll.

Plants will always strive to grow in the most unlikely places, including high up on the cliff face at Beer, the bright yellow and purple ones are wild wallflower. I think the more delicate yellow are a type of wild cabbage and the paler mauve are a mallow variety.

The beach at Beer is very special, unspoilt and traditional,  with ice cream and crab sandwiches, pebbles and driftwood and the opportunity to try your hand at mackerel fishing.

If ever you’re in Devon, pay Beer a visit, try a crab sandwich and then perhaps a  walk on the coast path to build up an appetite for cream tea!

  1. such a joyful treat for me on awakening this morning …. all that colour and interest on the beach! oh yes, I would love a crab sandwich and a cream tea!

  2. It all looks so perfect Gilly…beautiful vintage foods and sights. Love the stripy deckchairs. If I’m ever anywhere near Beer I will make sure to visit. Thanks for the introduction 🙂

  3. Beautiful as always. I can’t wait for the day when I can come to the U.K., it is one of my dreams. In the meantime I will continue to visit through your pictures and words. Thank you so much Gilly.

    1. They are a seaside tradition, dear little huts that you own or rent for a day, week or summer. Somewhere to sit, shelter from the sun or rain, drink tea, eat ice cream and watch the world go by!

I would love to hear from you . . .
