Berry Head, Brixham, South Devon in July


On a beautifully warm crystal clear Sunday morning I can't think of a better place to go and watch the world go by. You can find Berry Head at the southern tip of Tor Bay, made of limestone with 60 (200 feet) metre high cliffs, it is now a nature reserve.


If you missed anything in the left to right video, you can see it again right to left.


On one side the view will take you almost over to Dartmouth. Just passed the rocks that are called The Mew Stones. Nothing to do with this Mew.

 
At Berry Head large ditches surround the remains of a Napoleonic Fort.

I've always loved receiving postcards since I was a little girl.
If your a postcard nut too, try postcard crossing

Love the videos, Midge! Have you ever been to the white cliffs of Dover? I have seen them on tv, bet they are a site to see in person!

Hi Karen :-)
Went picking wild raspberries on the cliff top once.
The best place to see the White Cliffs of Dover are from a boat crossing the Channel.
MAKE SURE IT'S A CALM DAY FIRST :-)X

It looks beautiful, the water is so calm. A great place for children to pretend.

Chops has gotten so big and handsome. I like his coloring as most of the ones I see are olden color.

Happy birthday to Mark and hello to adorable Frank, Cooki Buns and Chops!!

Wonderful photos Midge! The videos were great too. All the fur babies are looking adorable. I love those thistles in the first photo.

Looks like you have been having some very good days out.
Chops is turning into a very handsome boy & Cookie just looks so glad to be alive!

I havent had a postcard in years. Now that I think of it, they are a dying art that needs to be restored!

Summer day trips are the best! Nice videos and photographs.

Frank did you really want to be out and about in a car???hmmmm no I didnt think so

Mary Ann said...

It looks so beautiful! Email me your address, I would love to send you a So Cal postcard:) Funny but they do seem to a rare thing nowadays. They remind me of being little along with that rock candy (the long thick sticks with stripes on them???).

Big hugs - Lurline♥
