Living on the edge of Braunton in North Devon during the current crisis has it advantages in that we have so many lovely quiet walks right on our doorstep. We get out every morning for an hour or two and head in various directions along deserted footpaths and bridleways. We hardly see another soul on our daily exercise hikes but practice the social distancing advice if we do.
This morning, as the weather was forecast to be especially nice, we thought we would head west towards the sea and do a circular walk to Croyde Bay and back. With blue skies and just a hint of a breeze it looked like the perfect walk.
A beautiful walk through stunning scenery only slightly spoilt by my ridiculous expression as we neared home. Thoughts of coffee and biscuits overtook me and I completely lost control. Apologies all round.
We’re so lucky to be staying in this crazily good part of the world. The weather is doing it’s best to help too.
Keep safe and healthy out there and just keep up your social distancing. It’s not easy but it’s critical.
