My Trip to Devon

I have just returned from Devon in south England. I never knew Devon was so beautiful and amazing.

Luckily for me this week just happened to be during a rare heatwave in the UK which reached 30 degrees and made the holiday more enjoyable. The seaside and beaches were just like being abroad. The beautiful blue Waters gently lapping against amazing beaches.

On my travels I visited Ilfracombe. Ilfracombe is a small town with an amazing Harbour, beautiful views and a great history. The edge of the pier is popular with kayakers and rowers and windsurfers just off the pier. The waters were calm and peaceful. The locals were happy and content with their home.

Upon the top of a Hill in Ilfracombe harbour is an old church dating back to 1300. It is an ancient house and a chapel with amazing sea views. It must of been a great isolated beauty spot in history to of once lived in.

Ilfracombe ia definately worth a visit if you ever travel to Devon. Here is a very English feeling and a deep beautiful surviving English culture. There is a beautiful fishing town and wonderful views to experience. The town centre is fantastic with beautiful coves and churches to view.

Out to sea overlooking the Coast is the statue of a pregnant woman raising a sword symbolising truth and justice in Britain. This has to be one of the nicest places I have ever been a recommend it to anyone to visit.

The winding roads of the coast presnt you with much of Englands green and pleasant lands and the mix of nature and history. Castles and monuments scattered around beautifully and flying the union Jack.

Woolacombe also has plenty of beautiful views and amazing Sandy beaches. Woolacombe sands beach is the most famous popular beach in Devon for its vastness. Here are beautiful coastal roads overlooking the vast blue sea.

This is a picture below of a coast road on the way down the hill towards Woolacombe sands. The view was breath taking and just as beautiful as anywhere else in the world.

I love being by the sea, the waves lapping against the shore is like an echo of time and has done the same for eternity. Holidays are amazing times and a reminder that life is for memories.

This is a picture of a rock pool close to the sea in Croyde Bay. The water is beautiful and completely clear and warm. There are many rock pools when the tide is out scattered on the beaches of Croyde Bay. The rock pools in some places are warm as there is no fresh water so the water is great to paddle or sit in. The rock pool in this picture reached just below knee level.

I love sunset over the coast. It is a beautiful mix of colours and it is calm and peaceful. There isn’t alot on the horizon to hide the sinking sun as he makes himself scarce for the moon to shine. The red skies flickered across the coastal sky wonderfully.

Above is a picture of what looks like the sun in a sunset but it is infact the moon. Sadly it didn’t turn out as well on my phones camera and look amazing as the scene was in person. The moon danced in the red skies of sunset.

Within the westcountry of England is so much amazing wonder and culture to witness. Beautiful houses on clifftops overlooking the vast beautiful seas which surround England.

How I shall miss the beautiful blue waters as I return to my reality and real life. How the calmness filled me and relaxed me at the seaside. How I shall miss the wonderful Westcountry and its echantment.

If you are heading south to Devon there is a great farm shop services on the M5. It is built into a Hill and has nice places to sit outside. On a day of blue skies and warmth everything is wonderful and everywhere is great to be at. Places are enjoyable and the people we meet are much happier.

This is a picture of the nice view round the back of the farm shop with a nice waterfall.

Overall my holiday was a success and Devon is a beautiful place in England that I recommend to anyone to visit. This lovely are of Britain shows a true reflection of England both past and present and is an English paradise.

Sadly holidays come to an end but the places and people remain in the memories of others forever. Moments and holidays last a lifetime and may we all enjoy them.

My rating: 4/5

Its Coming Home…

When the World Cup arrives no matter how good or bad we believe the England players are during the season – world Cup fever grips us all and we believe we can win it!

The rivalries and division of club football we have of supporting Man United, Liverpool, Everton, Arsenal etc are forgotten and we all join forces under the support and love of England and the belief we can win it. We all blast the song three lions in hope England will win the Cup. Afterall we all know what the players are capable of and we have won it before and we will win it again!

It has been 52 years and 13 world cups since England last lifted the trophy. Heroes in red walked down Wembley way and immortalised themselves forever.

When the world Cup arrives Memories re-surface of the great players of the world Cup past and missed oppurtinities and heroes who gave everything for the England shirt

When the world Cup arrives the hype begins – we wonder – will we get the Germans?? The team we have such history with and rivalry who we beat in 1966 but was knocked out by in 1970,1990,1996,2010 and the pain still continues of losing to them on penalties when we had a great chance to bring home the cup…

As the three lions song says – I can remember when Lineker scored in 1990 against the Germans in the semi final. A great hero of years gone by.

I can remember when Psycho Stuart Pearce scored in the 1996 penalty shoot out against Spain and his relief after missing in 1990 was amazing.

We need to experience this success and triumph again. Supporting England has been a rollercoaster ride. There has been lows, the heartbreak of penalty shoot outs, the cheating against us and endless hurt.

People call this above the ‘hand of God’ but never will I refer to it as that. It is the hand of a greedy cheating disgrace. The hand of God is Bobby Moores on the cup.

Heroes have come and gone and wore the greatest shirt in the world. A shirt millions and millions of people would love to wear and give it everything to wear the three lions of England and to win the world Cup. We have experienced amazing moments and amazing players.

but now is the time we are so hungry and desire and need to win the Cup. We have a group of players and who are a great team together and can win and achieve.

Forget about your club rivalries! You are wearing that shirt and the three lions and you are the English boys together to face them out there.

Should we allow the cheating Maradonnas and the rest of the world to steal our dreams and to stand in our way or should we let the world hear the three lions roar??

Gareth Southgate is the man who couldnt bring football home as a player, but as a manager he will bring football home!!

Now have our new heroes such as Pickford and Lingard and Kane. Heroes who are giving it everything for good old England

We have won a penalty shoot out with these boys, we are capable of beating anyone and are on the march to success. They are young hungry heroes who I believe can go all the way and win the cup and bring football home.

And as the belief grows and the spirits rise and England gets closer and closer….

Is it time for English hands to lift the world Cup again?…..
