Going to see the crashing waves












Phew I am finally going on holiday to Dartmouth this Saturday, I cannot wait. I have been visiting Dartmouth ever since I can remember and feel so at home there. I cannot wait to wander the little town, climb through rock pools, eat ice cream with clotted cream and go to Totnes for some vintage shopping! Oh and finally visit Agatha Christie's summer home. I have not even packed yet, I know I am going to take an excessive amount of dresses, even though the weather will probably be stormy.  I will be sure to share my adventures with you. 



Mermaid illustrations from here, Dartmouth images here, here, here oh and fishermen scene here

  1. Have a wonderful time by the sea! Sounds lovely. And there's no reason why you shouldn't wear dresses in stormy weather - just make sure you have a petticoat or bloomers on underneath! x

    I've been given a blogging award and thought to pass it on to you, if you don't mind. if you would like to take it up you can find the details on my blog.

    Looking forward to hearing about your holiday!
