Summer Evenings On Our Devon Pebble Beach

Summer Evenings On Our Devon Pebble Beach

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!

    I’m so jealous of where you live! It sounds so beautiful and it’s definetly a great way to spend some time, even if it is for a little while.

    Aww it would be so lovely to live by the beach. I would be doing the same as you with evening strolls too!

    This sounds such a beautiful way of life. I would love to live by the sea but neither of my kids like sand so that would be a no! We live in quite a small town outside Manchester so have the best of both worlds, the countryside & hilly walks but the big city nearby too

      It sounds perfect, peace from the hustle & bustle but not too far from the buzz of city life.

    Ok I am having a huge attack of jealousy right now, you are so lucky to have this on your doorstep. Love the photo of him looking out to sea, such a cool little dude x

    This time of the year must be beautiful around you, although I think I’d need to live somewhere a bit faster paced x

      I think most visitors are fine for a week or so then they struggle!

    I’ve only been to Devon once, and that was this year – shocking isn’t it?! But I loved it, and even had a date with a boy from Devon. OK, he was originally from London but still, Devon has a lot to offer! 🙂

    How lucky are you living so close to the sea! I miss that.

    I feel so similar to you since we moved to Somerset. I have to say that the only thing that frustrates me is how far we are from London but other than that, I love where we live – especially as we are on the Devon and Dorset borders too! 🙂

      I do wish it wasn’t such a long train journey to London as I miss out on all the blogging fun but at least its a direct train for me so can’t complain too much.

    Absolutely love Devon at this time of year 🙂

    Sea air always makes my three sleep well too – it does seem to be natures sleeping pill!
