Walking along the prom at Seaton May2020

As it is now allowed to travel to exercise we took a trip to the seaside at Seaton which is 20 miles from us.

It was a beautiful day, blue sky and seamless sunshine and the sea was calm with the waves just gently lapping the sand.DSC03951

There were few people about, and those that were were keeping their 2 metre distance.DSC03953

A group of 4 teenagers went swimming in the sea.  I imagine it was still quite cold.

The benches were mostly empty which makes a change but just shows how few people were there. Neil took advantage for this snap.DSC03954

There were gorgeous banks of flowers along the promenade.DSC03955DSC03957

I took the opportunity to wear a sun dress – makes a change from gardening clothes.DSC03959

It was really gorgeous there and as I had not been out anywhere (except our local lanes) for 8 weeks made a great change.DSC03961

However, there was no where to buy an ice cream or any refreshment open, and the public toilets were also all closed, so if you are going to Seaton, bear this in mind.

A different walk across the A303.

This morning we set off in a different direction for our walk.  As the A303 is so quiet at the moment we decided to cross it and walk down towards Beetham.20200414_113906

On the way we passed a lovely big rainbow painted on the front of someone’s drive, thanking the NHS – really great.20200414_112947

We walked down to the caravan park which has a notice on it saying it is closed now until the 30th June due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The country lanes were deserted apart from a tractor.20200414_113252

We noticed all the flowers in the hedges, the bluebells are starting to come out.20200414_113443

Some pretty little white flowers that we are not sure what they are.20200414_113624

And some cow parsley is in flower.20200414_114013We crossed back over the A303 and again it was deserted, so unusual.20200414_113854

We headed back towards home.20200414_113929

As we walked along the lanes we admired the view.20200414_114050

Quite a spectacular tree en route.20200414_114309

And then some blossom in someone’s garden.20200414_114535

Approaching our house we commented on the white bluebells on the corner.20200414_115020

We have narcissus growing in front of our wall.20200414_115201

And Forget-me-nots all the way down the wall on the RH side.20200414_115228

I love all the primroses at the this time of year.20200414_115239

We also have bluebells coming out.20200414_115246

And these are the pots of tulips on our front garden patio.20200414_115301

Not guests at the moment due to the lockdown, but time for lovely walks in the country and quite a bit of gardening.
