This was the view that met our eyes when we drove passed Saunton Sands yesterday.
The sun was shining on beautiful clear water, just right for body boarding, the sand was golden and the sky was a gorgeous blue.
People were out and about, staying safe and respecting the rules. The beach was full of laughter and fun, which is very welcome after months of lockdown and worry.
Devon has the most amazing beaches and coastline and what could be more appealing than this?
Keep an eye out for which of our wonderful accommodation providers will be opening and, maybe you too, could be part of this breathtaking picture that is North Devon!
