Our holiday and some pics

*********** LONG POST WARNING ***********
Thank you to everyone for your welcome back messages and get well wishes. I'm feeling a little more better today and managed to eat a little today, after nothing for 2 days. I've managed to download all the holiday pics so I can now share a selection with you.

Kingslake - This is was our holiday cottage, it was nice and cosy and we even had our own little garden area with a BBQ.

The wildlife was very friendly.

The fishing was very good, there were 7 lakes to choose from all set in natural surroundings and so peaceful.

We had some great days out too.....







The weather was fantastic with only one wet day at the start of the second week, so certainly couldn't complain. Devon really is a beautiful place we did consider moving there before we bought our current house. I was a bit disappointed with Torquay as I remember our family holiday there nearly 30 years ago, but it has become too built up and commercial now. My favourite days out were The Eden Project (Cornwall) and Ilfracombe. It was great going back to the Eden Project after first visiting it the year it opened, the landscape looked so bare the first time but now it is all well established and the Biorms were amazing. Ilfracombe was so pretty and though a popular coastal holiday resort it isn't over commercialised.

Well thats a bit about our holiday and I hope you enjoyed the piccies.

I plan to catch up with blog hopping and emails over the weekend, so please bear with me.
