Tin Box Traveller Diaries: July 2016

June was always going to be a hard month to follow – it had everything. Foreign travel, visiting family, lovely days out and some blogging highlights. However, July hasn’t been all that bad either. We’ve been doing more things at home and maybe that’s a good thing as August and September are shaping up to be super busy. So, thanks for the breather July. Here’s your highlights:

Travel

  • July saw me catching up with our recent travels rather than doing any. In fact, I haven’t left Devon all month. It’s been a time to recharge batteries on the beach, write up a few destination posts for the blog, and plan our summer adventures. Read on for more on all these.

Home

  • We had some special visitors at the start of the month – Tin Box Grandma and Grandpa. It gave us a lovely excuse to go swimming and sightseeing
  • The Tin Box girls had lots of play dates with friends, which they loved.
  • Mr Tin Box was working away A LOT this month, so thank goodness for our visitors and friends keeping us occupied!

Adventures

  • Our weekends were where the adventures happened this month. We made another trip to River Dart Country Park – we are starting to become regulars. The weather wasn’t as warm as when we visited in May but the girls still enjoyed the adventure playgrounds and artificial beach.
  • Another highlight was staging our own garden festival with the Caravan Club’s Big Little Tent Festival.
  • We paid our first visit to the Woodlands theme park just down the road from us in Dartmouth. Tin Box Tot was in slide heaven and I may have got a slightly soggy bottom from the waterslides too.
  • Our water babies continue to love swimming so we took them to the pool in Torquay and to the beach a few times.
  • We were invited along to the Midsummer Dreams Festival one weekend, which was a lovely theatre event in the grounds of Dartington Hall just outside Totnes in Devon.
