Today was our nineteenth wedding anniversary. We we always try to go out somewhere nice. We took a drive over to Dartmoor and since our compass and maps are packed in boxes we decided to take a safe walk from the Haytor Visitor Centre up to Haytor Rocks.
The weather was beautiful and we were rewarded with wonderful colours
It was still quite early in the morning and I managed to get a few images on the way up without the many ramblers that had appeared by the time we reached the bottom again.
Spectacularly bright colours in the early morning sunshine
Perfect place for a graze
More grazing friends
I love the colours in the foreground and you can still see the early morning mists in the distance
Quite an unusual sky as the clouds rolled in
Haytor Rocks looking like something from a Dr Who set
No visit to Dartmoor would be complete without a pony picture!
We had a wonderful day out on Dartmoor and drove across the road networks after our walk, taking in the beautiful scenery that Em from Dartmoor Ramblings photographs so well in her blog.
We stopped at Princetown for lunch and a visit to the Dartmoor Prison Museum.
We have been very busy with house viewings recently and I'm happy to say we have found our new home at last. Providing the survey goes well tomorrow we should be moving in late October/November.
Sadly it's not in Brixham, but not far away in an area of Paignton called Broadsands, which you may remember me talking about from this previous post. Broadsands is only about three miles down the road and still just a walk away through the woods on the South West Coastal Path.
We will still visit Brixham regularly for shopping, meals out, beautiful walks and all our favourite things to do, so we are very happy with our choice and can't wait to move in.
Now time for a glass of champagne to celebrate
Until next time, wishing you all well
