Sunday was a day of sunshine and relaxation which was truly needed.
It really felt like the first day of Spring.
Just a few hours of warming in the sun left us feeling energised and refreshed.
…and we found an Oil Beetle…bonus!
We can’t wait to have the van back to really start enjoying the sun and coast.

I’m so looking forward to doing my first event with Northern Devon Nature Improvement Area. Me and Ann decided to pay Meeth Quarry, a Devon Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve a visit where the event is taking place on the weekend of March 22nd and 23rd (I’ll be there on the 23rd from 11am-3pm)
It’s a beautiful place with lots of lovely little water ways,
…we even found some frog spawn!
…and some Scarlet Elf Cup fungi!
…and some Catkins,
…and I even made a friend
…but I’m very disappointed with myself that I haven’t been able to identify this caterpillar
For more information on Meeth Quarry visit

…and here’s a song about a frog to get you in the mood

There is a space in our drive just the right size for a VW Campervan.
With a small spot of oil, a memory of journeys past.
A space of silence, 34 years of memories, not all ours.
A hole, never ending, dug deep inside.
Feelings reminiscent of when Jess the cat died.
A melancholy sorrow, a heart forever effected,
but unlike Jess, you can be resurrected,
because Jess didn’t have a broken camshaft,
he died of kidney failure.
Get well soon Schnecke…you can do it
