The Story Behind the Image - Thatched Cottage in Otterton, Devon

This photo came about because my wife needed a quick snack after a busy day of sightseeing.

Let me explain. We visited the beautiful Devon village of Otterton at the end of a long day exploring south-western Devon.

We just barely managed to reach Otterton in time to explore the restored water mill and the medieval parish church before it closed for the day. After visiting the church my wife decided that she needed a break and a bite to eat.

Me being the 'always active' sort, I decided to grab my camera and stroll around Ottertton while she had a quick bite and put her feet up in our car.

I was simply walking down the High Steet when I came to this beautiful thatched cottage, covered in wisteria. The scent of the wisteria on the summer breeze was simply heavenly.
