The English Riviera


Last week I spent a night in Torquay in Devon as I had to speak at a conference (get me!). Lest you should get the wrong impression of my lifestyle and job status - this only happens once in a blue moon, so I made the most of the sea view from my very swanky hotel room. Torquay is known as the English Riviera because of the temperate climate - hence the palm trees.


Other than that, nothing much going on here - been quilting my crumb chaos quilt but it's slow going so not worth a picture yet - maybe next weekend!

I think you might have just had the best weather the South West has had to offer this summer

Clare said...

You had great weather which makes all the difference.

I'm sorry, but every time someone mentions Torquay, I get the giggles because all I can think of is Fawlty Towers.

What time for quilting when you are enjoying 'swank' *s*

How beautiful! I would love to be lounging on that balcony watching the lovely scenary and quilting!

You were so lucky with the weather! Any Riviera is miserable when it rains!

It looks a lovely place to visit. So glad you stayed at a decent hotel and not with John Cleese ( LOL)

Torquay? Obviously you stayed at Fluffy Towels.

Hope you had a great time.

I'm blog-hopping through Chookyblue's SSCS list to meet all the others in the swap :-)
