Actually pink Sunday.

We decided to go out for lunch on Sunday as the rest of the family were busy so we went to a little village just outside Exeter  called Topsham and, despite the fact it is “ on our doorstep” it was a lovely day out.

Topsham was once the second busiest port in England. Now it is a favourite destination for the retired, and tourist alike.


See the pink buoy next to the pontoon?

The town is sited on a low red ridge between the main river of the Exe to the west and the River Clyst, to the south. The Exe at this point is an estuary of some width with salt marshes on its opposite bank.

On the quay is an enormous antique centre but I missed the opportunity to photograph some pretty cranberry glass. However, There were some beautiful pink cottages -

here are some

077 This one was stunning. Called Drakes Cottage.

087 Pale pink with beautiful windows.

100 Tucked away in a little side street.

103 The local hairdressers.

109 Pink door on a Georgian frontage.

115 hiding away.

Next week – more pink in Topsham. Hurry back
