The rocky road to Rockham!

It would be a crime to sit inside and not take advantage of this amazing weather we’ve been having – so that is exactly what I have been doing!  We had a fantastic day on Sunday; I packed up a picnic, rug, swimming costume and my factor 30 sunscreen and headed for Rockham beach in Mortehoe.

The walk down to the beach was just stunning with views stretching towards Lundy Island.  On our way to the beach we passed sheep grazing on the path, hawks flying above us circling their prey and we took photos of the abundant summer flowers nestling in the rock face.  We spent a very relaxing afternoon dipping our toes in the clear warm sea, looking into rock pools and trying to spot seals (no luck on this occasion!)

After the climb back up to the village we enjoyed a refreshing ice cream from the local shop and watched the world go by in the village square.  We have 2 fabulous apartments in Mortehoe just a short walk to Rockham beach Beach Break
