10 August 2014

Pasties, chocolate cake and Coke at Beer.

A brief pootle up the A30 to Honiton, then down the Fairmile Straight towards Beer for a morning snack. Nobody told us it is Carnival Week at Beer but the park is not too full and Hurricane Bertha has blown out its rain overnight.
We find a hole and witness a car being bumped in the car park, then leave a note while the culprits drive off without stopping!

Bacon butties, or a hot pasty, flap jack and tea or coffee at Keno’s’ beach-hut café and a relaxing hour in the hot sun; later a stroll through the craft market and a gander in Beer Gallery. Pricey artwork here for sale with small pictures £500, larger ones upwards of £1,500!  To raid or not to raid my pension pot next April, that is the question!
Methinks Helen would prefer an Aran knitwear jumper for her birthday. Lovely hand knitted garments at the craft fair; 1/3 the price of the equivalent shop article.
We carry home a nice fillet of Plaice from the beachside fish shop for tea. 
This seaside gem remains our favourite watering hole of all those in Devon. Wooden fishing boats to be seen hauled up the pebble beach across slippery poles drenched in cooking oil. Beach huts for hire and deck chairs if you prefers not to sit on pebbles.
The cove is sheltered beneath the cream coloured cliffs of Beer stone. 

A few miles further along begins the Jurassic fossil coastline.
