Spring has sprung! There are bumblebees as big as golfballs and frogs in the Stream.

As soon as the last of the Winter storms blew over, the Sun has been a firm fixture here in South Devon and so we’re suddenly all drawn once more – back to a water’s edge…

The flowers are springing up everywhere, birds are chittering and the Stream bubbles along happily.

There are a few special spots by the stream that are perfect for mini earth-works, playing pooh sticks and finding frogs.

Beaches Near Flear… Thurlestone Sands

Part 3 of our local beach tour looks at Thurlestone Sands.

thurlestone beach

There are two main beaches at Thurlestone – the smaller is by the Golf club, whilst the larger a little further along the coast towards South Milton. Both have a fine, shingle sand and sheltered waters.

The South Milton end has views out into the bay where the famous Thurlestone Rock stands majestically,

Thurlestone Sands is unspoiled by lots of extra facilities, but South Milton does have the convenience of toilets, cafe/kiosk and watersports hire in season. Swimming is a delight on these beaches and there is a lifeguard in the summer season on South Milton Sands. Dogs are permitted on these beaches, and they are as lovely to visit to wander along as they are to set-up camp for a day of sunbathing and swimming.

After the Storm. A few pics of Flear today…

 

After the biggest Storm we’ve had in years (and a somewhat sleepless night for us), it was time for us all to enjoy the glorious outdoors again, with families playing tennis today and us replacing a few roof slates so we’re back to normal and so lucky! The local roads are all open and the South Hams has weathered the Storm very well, thankfully!
