weekly photo challenge:fleeting moment

June 29, 2012

Normally the beloved works with Chris on  Thursday, but Chris was ill yesterday so we took the opportunity to go out somewhere during the day. The morning sky was the usual grey we have come to expect of  late, and it drizzled a little, but it was quite warm – so we headed off to Brixham in search of some National Trust land by the sea in between Berry Head and Man Sands.

We found our destination car park (free!) squatting uncomfortably close to a holiday camp and a building site for a new holiday camp, but we were in an unspoiled area of outstanding natural beauty beside the sea and the sun came out! Absolutely beautiful. Devon at its best.

We walked along some of the coast path, heard some peregrine falcons squawking and then saw them and their two fledglings (we didn’t know what they were, but we encountered a knowledgeable couple sitting on a seat with a perfect sea view). The Bay was even guarded by a statue,  though the Japanese knotweed was obscuring her view.

After exploring a little we settled down to a picnic – what the picnic lacked in content was more than compensated by the location and I did offer to make the beloved an impromptu salad of wild mustard leaves and pignuts which were growing nearby. “I’m not eating any bloody umbelifferers” he said.  His loss.

It was hot! The sun was out and it felt like a June day. Unfortunately, it was only fleeting and by the time we got home the sky was grey again.
