Osborne House is a beautiful building and, whilst an ostentatious display of wealth, also shows an appreciation of quality craftsmanship and sustainability that might, hopefully, make a return one day.
One of my favourite Newton Abbot parks. There are many to choose from, all with entirely different characters. Photos take in 2009.
Scotland Day 13: Loch Lomond & The Trossachs
Our 13th day in Scotland was relatively short and relaxing, taking in Aberfoyle and a number of lochs in The Trossachs, an area I feel I know fairly well after a number of visits in recent years.
Scotland Day 4: Buckie to Thurso
North of Inverness is the most stunning scenery we have yet scene in Scotland – and that is saying something. We stopped on the way at an Eden-like idyll just before Golspie, which was itself a beautiful town with varied and beautiful architecture.
A hire car and a meeting in Bideford provided an opportunity to take the ‘slow’ road back to Newton Abbot and stop off at Meldon reservoir on the way.
Lockdown gave me an opportunity to really go to town on my garden – and get some serious work done. Sun and fun – and exercise too!
