Postcards from Beer, East Devon

We popped down to Beer this afternoon to clear the lungs, look in some art galleries and throw pebbles in the sea.It is a traditional Devon working fishing village where the mackeral , crab and lobster fishing fleet are winched up onto the shingle beach every night as seen in the photos. Its sheltered isolated cove was perfect in the past for smugglers of brandy, tea and tobacco from the Channel Islands and France. Certainly a spot of brandy in some hot chocolate would have been welcome as was f-f-freezing!
