We’re out of synch with most people, having just arrived in Devon for our Summer Holiday.
The forecasters promised a miserable day, but we’ve enjoyed plenty of sun, and been entertained by wasps and ants whilst we’ve been out in the sun (thankfully the only casualty was wearing a black and yellow outfit).
Whilst Joe and Nancy man the fort back home we’re living in a converted chapel.
We’re down the end of an unmade road, in the courtyard of an old farm.
Our neighbours are other grockles, a mad 5 month old dog, and massive rhubarb plants.
That’s our roof in the background.
Behind that ancient facade is one GINORMOUS room that’s 40ft long and 15ft wide, with a ceiling that’s about 24ft high.
Once the building ceased to be a chapel, it was converted into a Music Room. Elderly denizens at nearby Aveton Gifford vouch for the fact that private recitals were performed here about 50 years ago.
We’ve the use of an upright piano, but the only music here today was Wagner, as we made use of the fancy sound system. Back behind those doors in a bijou bathroom.
All the other facilities, from kitchen to 4 Poster Bed are in one open plan space.
Despite the generous dimensions the holiday let is for two, but we are allowed to entertain guests.
We were happy to see our “old neighbours” this afternoon.
The rain’s been lashing down this evening, but we’re still hoping to continue along the Coast Path in the next few days.
