First day of Devon Holiday










SO after we had gotten over the horrendous journey down and had a good sleep (well you know a sleep for two hours in a row max and then up at 5.30 kinda sleep) we decided what to do with our day. Quite often Tom will bring me breakfast in bed (and if not then always tea) and pretty much that makes up for whatever broken sleep I have had the night before. 
Although lately I have had to have at least two cups of tea and a coffee before 10am to be able to function properly, but when you are up from 5.30 then 10am is practically lunch time. And in fact what we did decide to do with our day was head down the beach at Blackpool Sands..it was windy (but not rainy) but cold enough to not want to stay outside for too long, instead we went to the Venus beach cafe and had ordered lunch by 11.30. 
We were pleasantly surprised by the menu, expecting the usual veggie option being a cheese sandwich I had about five different amazing sounding things to choose from. Tom and I both settled on the tofu and beetroot burger which I can confirm was really tasty. All their ingredients were organic and well thought out which really for a beach cafe they didn't need to do, we wondered that most of their custom must be passing trade but actually we were told locals love it too and as they only close one day of the year (christmas) they are a good staple in the community. 
as usual I took so many pictures I will have to post them in a few different posts!
