Summer holiday part 3 - Devon

This is where we stayed for the last part of our holiday, another Landmark, the China Tower.  It's 4 floors with a big spiral staircase, in the middle of some woods in the middle of East Devon.  It was loads of fun to live in for a few days.

Before we got there we had a day out at Killerton, a national trust house (with mouse trail) and gardens/grounds (with history trail).  Both were sufficient fun for the children to allow the grownups to have a little walk around too.

And when we got there we had tea.

We had a bit of a beachy time, although the weather was never good enough for anything other than a walk along them.  This is Budleigh Salterton (stony).

A trip to A la Ronde was unusual (seagull trail inside, brass rubbing trail outside) but also pleasurable.

And then a fossil day over at Charmouth and Seaton.  Finding ammonites on the beach, going to the Seaton Jurassic adventure, and then a non-fossilly ice cream!

And finally (in which I brush over the car troubles we had getting back), fish and chips on the beach in Beer.  A very nice week.
