Autumn might be here, at least the start of it, we still have a few sunny days down here in the South West of England.
Visiting Dartmouth there was a distinct absence of people yesterday.. We weren't on a day trip or jaunt, we have visitors at the cottage that had never been to Dartmouth.
A return visit too. There is nothing better than enjoying the company of friends.
Playing silly devils with the camera around the shops.
This is a shop I wanted to visit. The Harbour Bookshop in Dartmouth is closing down.
It was opened in 1951 by Christopher Robin Milne. The real Christopher Robin of Winnie the Pooh fame.
The Internet has huge book stores, why bother going out to a book shop ?
I like book shops, I love to browse and read before I buy. As much as I love the Internet and how it's made the whole world a lot smaller, it's played a great part in this shops demise. I will miss book shops that are closing just like The Harbour Bookshop because of the Internet.
Thankfully, some things still stay the same, the taste of real French Champagne for one.
Good friends another.
What ever your up to this weekend, have a great time. Champagne bubbles really do go up your nose. Not that Freya would know.
Freya is out and about on her blog. You can find her at The Cat Flap Cavalier.
She has her own photo's to show you. Here is one that I thought you might like to see on Soggibottom.
Our window seat seems to be full again.
