There’s something about living in my little Devon village which makes everything seem a little slower paced. I love how we can live a more simple life, enjoying back to basics fun right in our doorstep, just a short stroll and I’m right here, on my local Devon pebble beach.
Don’t get me wrong, I do get modern life envy at times, when I hear what’s on the doorstep for others. Even pizza delivery seems exciting! But on a summer’s evening, when the only sound you can hear are the seagulls dominating the sky, looking for unsuspecting tourists to steal chips from. I’m always a little reluctant to let go of the day, so it’s on with the flip-flops and off for a walk to grab the last few ray’s before it slips down behind the chalky white cliffs for the night.
Some days it’s a few moments throwing pebbles in the sea, others we (the kids) brave for a paddle. Then it’s up the hill back home for the usual bedtime toddler shenanigans. hoping for another sunny day tomorrow so we can do it all over agin.
And it’ fair to say we always sleeps a little better, toddler included, after an evening dose of sea air.
Natures sleeping pill in the purest, most wonderful form!
