EXCELLENT EXMOOR!

Just recently we escaped ArtPix Towers to run to the hills of the excellent Exmoor!

What a better way to get away from all those boring problems and get some fresh air, than on the amazing, sweeping landscapes of the moorlands that run between Somerset and North Devon.

Had a gorgeous walk at Simonsbath, to the brilliantly named Cow Castle, a small fort in amongst the majestic valleys and hills around the village.
We were lucky to have a brilliant sunny day there, but just imagine walking around there in the winter, wow!

Looking forward to another trip there soon!

Into the valley! On our way to Cow Castle.

Amazing trees in a perfect line going up the side of the valley.

Mysterious trees alongside the river.

The trees hanging over towards the river.

Spotted this dashing dragonfly along the way!

Also visited the seaside town of Ilfracombe in Devon, where some of the ArtPix clan reside!
The town is famous for its stunning Victorian architecture, and in amongst some buildings on the High Street, you can see some fabulously faded remnants of its glorious past...

No doubt hidden for years, this old blacksmith's sign has been revealed.

If you look up in the doorway of the old Ilfracombe Liberal Club, you can see gorgeous old lettering slowly seeing the light of day once again.

Amazing textures of old paint, falling away to reveal number 133.
