40 40 SAVE ALL!


We have just spent a wonderful few days down in Devon visiting friends and even though it was grey and rainy most of the time, we weren’t deterred from exploring the beaches and beautiful Dartmoor National Park.

40:40 has become THE game of the year for us and this was the perfect spot at Dartmoor – I think it was called Bone Rocks, slightly off the beaten track. We placed our Frisbee as the home spot and you can see our lab Tynor here wondering where on earth we have all hidden. He was actually very funny as he chased me to all my hiding places and so kept giving me away – not helpful!

The beaches were glorious too, the children were brave enough to put on their wetsuits and get in the water. However, we were happy climbing rocks and keeping dry!

I’m not quite sure if we found a little prison (bars on the windows) or some type of mini fortress/look-out but the views were incredible from all angles! I have to say, as those of you on my Facebook know, I have recently leapt from Apple to Android and my new phone takes fabulous pictures, although I’m still figuring out the rest! It definitely takes a bit of patience to understand all the shortcuts!

Summer holidays are upon us, so plenty more adventures ahead.

Catch up soon!

    Hi Pipa. You always look so happy and full of energy. Loved your short hair but the longer length looks fabulous on you too.
