Croyde Holiday 2007 – Day 8

Day 8 Saturday 16/06/07

The last day. Down to the beach early for a last swim/surf and then back to the house to pack. Having missed the photo opportunity for the rest of the week, John suggested a group photo in the tree house. As you can see it took a little while to get everyone lined up.

On the way home, Helen, Harry, John and I stopped off at a National Trust property at Montacute for lunch and a nice walk. Continue reading

Croyde Holiday 2007 – Day 7

Day 7 Friday 15/06/07

Last full day in Croyde. Weather today was atrocious, pouring with rain and windy. It was the last day though so we were determined to go to the beach. The wind was good so we took the kite again. There was a festival at the beach today and the volleyball area was taken over by a large number of screaming schoolchildren. The Red Arrows were due at 12 and did a good display Continue reading

Croyde Holiday 2007 – Day 6

Day 6 Thursday 14/06/07

Weather wasn’t so great on Thursday. Got some kite flying in on the beach in the morning.  The wind was pretty strong and you had to hold on really tight and make sure you didn’t get pulled over.  The rest of the day was spent sheltering in the house and playing games or reading. Continue reading

Croyde holiday 2007 – Day 5

Day 5 Wednesday 13/06/07

Starting early in the morning (because the sun came up at about 5) we got up at about 8 and found that the fire was still burning and needed to be put out. We went back to the house and collected some of the others for a swim. By the time we got to the beach it was raining hard and we must have looked pretty stupid in our swimming costumes but there weren’t many people on the beach to see us. Continue reading

Croyde holiday 2007 – Day 4

Day 4 Tuesday 12/06/07

Started with a walk up the hills towards Saunton and then back round behind the house and down into Croyde.  This is a nice walk as it is not as exposed and bleak as the walk out to Baggy Point on the other side of town.  There are nice shaded paths and large fields.  John and I stopped to fly his kite in one of the fields part way up Continue reading

Croyde holiday 2007 – Day 2

Day 2 Sunday 10/06/07

Today was very sunny and the morning was spent playing games in the massive garden, I am champion of boulles but was pretty rubbish at everything else.

The afternoon was spent reading and chilling out on the deck or in the house.  Not much more to be said really.  Kat and I created a BBQ feast for dinner. Continue reading
