Clovelly - North Devon, England

That summer I left my footsteps
in this tiny English fishing village,
an idyllic and secluded settlement
that has been built into a cleft in a 400' high cliff
at North Devon, England.

could be this translucent turquoise blue;

it reminded me of Bahamas.

This quaint village has one main high street

which is cobbled and winds steeply down
to the small fishing harbor.

On either side of the high street,
traditional whitewashed cottages are festooned
with fuchsias and geraniums.

In the old days,
donkeys were used to carry goods up the hill;
sledges bring things down.

walking down to the fishing harbor ...Red Lion Hotel by the quayside offer
charming accommodation
and excellent bar and restaurant food
