I have always lived in cities due to my work mostly. It's where I grew up and an environment I got to know. There are advantages to city living and some people wouldn't live anywhere else.
My holidays have mostly been sea and countryside locations. I have had a few city breaks but really didn't like them as much as being by the sea or in the remote parts of Scotland.
So along with my husband, a keen lover of the sea, we started to plan our great escape. All our holidays were spent looking at locations around the coast of Britain.
Why the Torbay area?
We loved Brixham and we came back several times to check it out before moving there a few years ago. I look at Torbay every day and think "wow what a great place to live".
There is so much to see and do all around the area. We moved house a while ago from Brixham and live a few miles down the road at Broadsands.
So this blog is about life in South Devon, including wildlife, places to visit, the odd moan about things and my garden wildlife project. Hopefully supported with lots of nice photos too!
I like taking photos, they're
not great but, it makes me happy. So now my photos have a purpose and
the blog keeps me focused, it's just what I needed. I have no idea why I
didn't think of this before! I've put my best images onto Flickr.
I have a Nikon D3100 which I'm still getting used to.
I have a standard Nikon kit lens and a Nikon 200 mm telephoto lens which has a wonderful quality to it. I am enjoying my new Sigma macro 105 mm lens which is wonderful.
I have also added a Panasonic Lumix FZ72 Bridge camera to my kit. I felt I needed a much bigger zoom lens for wildlife, especially the seabirds, and carrying a 400 mm lens would have been too much for me.
Thanks for taking the time to read a bit more about me and the blog.
