Summer by the sea

Wow!  It's been a long time and so much has happened since I last blogged but I've still been snapping away, and I felt it was time I shared a few shots from my summer... especially as the nights are drawing in and the cold is starting to bite, we all need a reminder of what the Great British Summer looked like.

It was the beautiful South Devon coast that drew me back again this August.  Whilst I have plenty of shots of Dartmouth harbour, the boats and the fun of the regatta from over the years, I thought I'd try to get a few more traditional seaside shots this time around, so I headed out on the steam railway to Paignton to capture the bright colours of the beach huts and all the traditional seaside sights.

So, below are a few highlights from the summer.  I hope they brighten up a cold Autumn evening!

I also picked up these delicious macarons from the food fair in Dartmouth.  Couldn't resist the pretty pastel colours, and although they're not traditional seaside food, I thought they toned in rather nicely with the summer seaside pastels.
