Summer In Devon.
We had a superb week in Devon last week.
Gorgeous weather for most of the week.
Max ate raspberries. And more raspberries. And more raspberries..........
I enjoyed exploring the wilds of Dartmoor. A stunning place. When we went a while ago I took myself off and found a weird and wonderful place called Grimspound. It's a strange Neolithic encampment on the side of a hill.
There is a group of stone houses surrounded by a derelict but large stone wall.
It is an incredible settlement. It's amazing just sitting in one of the little houses trying to imagine what life must have been like for the original occupants. When they lived there nobody knows, but it is easy to imagine that they really weren't much different to us.

More soon....................
