Travelling, it leaves you speechless and turns you into a storyteller. Here’s my story of my travelling expedition to Devon, located in South England. Devon also known as Devonshire is a county of England and is gifted with both cliffs and sandy shores on it coasts. A coastal part of the country, known for its beaches, green farms, seaside resorts, ports and fishing towns. For me it is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city,.
One of the places I visited during my stay in Devon was the Stoke Fleming and Blackpool sand beach. Stoke Fleming is a small village in South Devon and Blackpool Sands is a private beach with Venus Café. The beach is surrounded by pines and evergreens. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Devon. The only downside for me personally was that it is pebbly beach and not a sandy one but has lovely turquoise blue sea.The water is clean and clear and superb if you love swimming. During the summers the beach is cleaned regularly.
The beach has various activities like rafting, wet suits, kayaking and stand up paddle boards for hire. You can also enjoy a range of delicious cuisine at Venus café. The Café offers locally produced and organic food which is delicious and also has a beach shop where one can buy beach games and goods. The beach is also equipped with refreshing shower facilities, toilets and disabled facilities.
The beach also hosts several summer events and the cafe is open in the evenings for dinner for July & August, making it a perfect summer getaway. Overall Stoke Fleming and Blackpool Sands beach has something for everyone. It is definitely a must visit if you are in Devon.
Now talking about my outfit. I wore a dark pink dress with a floral head band. I was aiming for a very bohemian and beachy look. Bright colored dresses are perfect for a day out in the sun. One of the most important things that you should wear when going to the beach is sunscreen. Also sandals and slippers are a great option for the beach. I tried to keep my makeup minimal and let my outfit do the talking. PS:- forgot to click pictures during the day, got so busy enjoying the sun and water games

Later in the evening, I went to Radius 7 Restaurant for dinner and wore an off shoulder lace top with a white Capri. It was a semi casual look which is appropriate for most occasions and places. I also kept my accessories to bare minimum. Off shoulder tops and cold shoulder are in this season. Also this semi-casual look is perfect for a dinner date.
