Today I wanted to share another lovely place that we visited on our Devon trip. Fingle Bridge is a 17th century stone bridge over the river Teign in Dartmoor. It is a remarkably tranquil place and perfect for walkers and nature lovers - we've seen kingfishers and otters both enjoying the crystal clear waters.
But it's not just the wildlife that enjoyed the river! As you saw in my post on Slapton Sands, I can never resist the chance for a paddle... (Even though it was freezing!)
I wore my new Seventies maxi dress, which has a psychedelic print I just could not resist. I teamed it with my green coat, which is not actually vintage, though I have had it practically half my life so it seems like it too me! However, with its corduroy fabric it is very much reminiscent of 70s fashions. I also wore my 50s Daniel Masson hat, to protect me from the Dartmoor drizzle. I have a fabuolous late 60s Bernat Klein hat that would have gone so much better with this outfit, but unfortunately I didn't have it with me. Just goes to show you can never take too many hats on holiday!
Fingle Bridge is not always the most peaceful place, one early morning each January it is crossed by hundreds of classic cars and motorcycles on the Exeter Trial. Here is a competitor tackling the tricky ascent after crossing the bridge.
