Saturday was one of those steamy July days when a craft marquee isn’t the best place to spend the day. Luckily for me, I was able to escape at regular intervals and check out some of the goings on at the Mid Devon Show. There’s always lots to see, but I only ever manage little glimpses. Here are some of them, starting with some classic cars.
Classic sports car
Rows of Minis
A splendid 1913 Rover
An old local fire engine
Being a country show there are always plenty of flowers.
Cottage garden plants
Lots to choose from
Bugs hotels are very popular
Add some rural crafts.
Willow basket making
Spinning a yarn
Bobbins for Honiton lace
I’d better not linger here
But the Ceylon Curry House do the best lunch!
The odd tractor is a must
And I’d love one of these.
A burst of Kalash Tribal is a must see.
‘The Widecombe Wag’ interviews Kelly
Dynamic and feminine
What would a country show be without some livestock?
So, that was the Mid Devon Show 2014, and I’m already looking forward to next year, maybe you’ll be there too?
Yesterday was Scarlett, my granddaughter’s first birthday.She had a lovely party with lots of family and friends the day before, all very exciting! I was very lucky to be able to stay for the actual day and after a morning opening presents we had a seaside stroll.
On a sunny Sunday at Beer in East Devon, it pays to be around bright and early to enjoy the peaceful beach. With blue skies and the crunch of the waves on the pebbles and just a few people it’s a perfect spot.
The stuff of coastal folk
Looking West, Branscombe is around the corner, I don’t think you can walk it at beach level, but you can always climb up to the South West Coast Path.
I hope you liked an early peep at Beer?
