View looking down on Welcombe Mouth at about 9 o’clock this morning. I make this about the twelfth sunny day on the bounce. The kids who’ve just stayed at Mead Barn Cottages this half term will in years to come regale their own grand kids about the time they came to a nice spot in north Devon and enjoyed this splendid bout of continental style weather.
Crooklets beach at Bude, our nearest town, taken yesterday morning. The weather is even better today. Very pleased for our guests staying this week, some of whom made heroic drives to get here yesterday and today on the bank holiday big get-away.<
20 degrees at 16.30 here at Mead Barn Cottages in Welcombe earlier. Crikey! Caution – please do not stare directly at the photo of the sun, this could damage your eyes. Another day of this splendid weather and the local mayor must surely declare a heatwave, whereupon the pubs will run dry and the butchers will sell out of burgers and sausages.
