☀️Torcross Beach 🏖 20.8.19☀️
We were up with the larks this morning (...Harry has one of us up at the crack of dawn every morning...) but today we were breakfasted, dressed and out the door by 8.45am with our sights set on Torcross to see the ducks and throw some stones into the sea!
Sadly Torcross Stores has closed since we were last there and so we couldn’t by any food for the ducks 🦆 (knowing that they shouldn’t have bread, we didn’t bring any) and it was overgrown with nettles. So we waved to the ducks and teenage looking swans and headed over the road to the beach. 
High tide didn’t stop us from entertaining ourselves finding starfish on the shore and perfect stones for skimming, clambering on the rocks and digging in the sand. 
A lovely morning, just getting out for an hour can make such a difference to our day. We had nothing planned for today and have happily spent the rest of the day napping, baking and playing in the garden (in an attempt to avoid the crowds and traffic which is everywhere now!)

Take me back to Devon please ⛵️🚤 Once again trying to play around with colours to make my drawings easy on the eye. I also want to practise more backdrops, as they have always been my weak point 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ This was inspired by my trip down to Devon and going on Will’s family’s boat, Glory Days 💕💕 #glorydays #devon #torcross #beach #beachillustration #boat #summer #illustration #digitaldrawing #artist #ipadpro #procreate

The last night.... the last night falling asleep and waking to the waves lapping against the shore, the last moonlight shimmering across the sea and the last sunrise sparkling, the last flashing of the lighthouse at Startpoint, the last laughter from the smalls as they play, the last glass of champagne drunk and the last kiss goodnight... until next time ♡♡♡ #torcross #torcrossbeach #goodwinds #familyholidayhome #happyplace #devonheaven #ourlittlepieceofparadise #makingmemories2019 #lighthouse #startpoint #moonlight #sea #coastallife #cominghome

My first ever manga, a horror story about spirals recommended by a lovely girl in the shop last week. Took a while to work out that it reads backwards but I’m hooked. Slightly concerned that my spiral obsession may end badly though........

T O R C R O S S • Devon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🇬🇧 ~ In late 1943 Torcross was evacuated to make way for 15,000 allied troops who needed the area to practice for the D-Day landings.
•
In the early hours of 28 April 1944 a tragic incident happened during Exercise Tiger: nine German torpedo boats (Schnellboote), alerted by heavy radio traffic, intercepted a three-mile-long convoy of vessels travelling from the Isle of Portland to Slapton Sands to undertake landing rehearsals for D Day. Two Tank landing ships (LST) were sunk in the engagement and 946 American servicemen died. Poor communications led to badly-timed shelling on the beach, killing about 300 more men. Over 1,000 lives were lost over the course of the operation, most of them through US Army friendly fire.
•
A Sherman amphibious tank and several plaques stand at Torcross car park between Slapton Ley and the beach as memorials to the men who lost their lives. The operation to salvage the tank from the shallow waters of Start Bay was financed by Ken Small, a Torcross hotelier, and was completed in 1984.

Torcross was originally a fishing & farming village. In the late Victorian age it then became involved in tourism. The area was also used during WW2 by some 15,000 allied troops who needed use of the beach to practice D-day landings.

Now you can stay in beautiful sea view accommodation and enjoy unspoilt views across the English channel. This beautiful photo is with thanks to @luxurycoastalholidays

Torcross, Slapton Sands and Slapton Ley Nature Reserve on the left. Exercise Tiger took place here in April 1944 with the loss of ~750 service personnel (mainly US). Difficult to imagine those D-Day preparations when looking at this picture.
