Our weekend in Devon continued under grey skies, accompanied by gales. Our plans to visit a nearby National Trust house on Sunday were thwarted because severe weather warnings meant it had to be closed. So we decided to make the most of the weather, and drove to Croyde to watch the wild waves. The wind was strong and cold, and the swell enormous as we walked out along Baggy Point.
Today the skies were clearer as we headed home, and we called in at Knightshayes Court en route. We enjoyed the designs of the interior and the carefully planning in the kitchen garden, but the highlight was the wonderful display of magnolia trees in the formal gardens. I have never seen such huge magnolia trees, and blossoms, subtly scented. Just beautiful!
