Decembers Festive Events in Shaldon

| 6 days ago | Blogging

How to do Christmas in Shaldon.. The right way!  Decembers Festive Events  We should probably start with Shaldon’s newest addition to good coffee, wine and dinner. Relocating across the road from the Coffee Rush, ‘The Clifford Shaldon’ is where you need to be on those chilli evenings. Our personal favourite is an Espresso Martini, made by the man himself Dominic. If you’re a Jazz fan, check out their wicked music events throughout December.  Mon 11th December -Over Dinner - Philip Clouts Trio philipcloutsquartet.co.uk Mon 18th December - Over Dinner - Drat Pack Special www.thedratpack.co.uk www.theclifford.co.uk   The Clipper Café holds an extremely popular Christmas Artisan Market on Wednesday 6th December from 6pm. The Clipper stands in one of the most idyllic locations in Shaldon, right on the beach. So grab yourself a mulled wine, some Christmas gifts and enjoy the breath-taking views of the River Teign. www.theclippershaldon.co.uk   If you have the little ones with you then a must visit is the Shaldon Zoo. Their ‘Magical Christmas Weekends’ are not to be missed with Santa’s grotto on the December 9th,10th, 16th, 17th, 23rd, 24th. For its size, this small but perfectly formed zoo offers an amazing experience for the kids, with animals such as Golden lion tamarins, Yellow-breasted capuchins, Ruffed, Ring-tailed and Fat-tailed dwarf lemurs, Madagascan giant jumping rats, Pied tamarins, Azara’s agoutis and many more. www.shaldonwildlifetrust.org.uk The Shipwrights Arms is a short level walk and has Pete Burrows playing on the 16th December at 9pm and Carol singing with Jude Rose and Company on the 23rd December at around 6.30 to 7pm , after the carol singing  Guy Stockwell is playing at 8.30. www.shipwrightsshaldon.co.uk   Another one for the lovers of great music. Our local lad Ollie Stephens is performing his album launch in the stunning St. Peter’s Church. All of us here in Shaldon have already purchased our tickets so make sure you do not miss this one. Wednesday 20th Dec at 7pm. www.olliestephens.com    The Build Up Sat 23rd Dec at 3pm the Crib and Christingle Service is held at St. Peters Church. Because Christingle was specifically created with children in mind, it’s a real family oriented event but can be enjoyed by people of all ages – even if you don’t regularly attend St Peters. www.shaldonchurches.org.uk   The Big day It’s Christmas, Do whatever makes you feel jolly!  We love a crisp walk whilst the Turkeys Roasting; with options of Shaldon Beach, The Ness, or The South West Coastal Path. Of course with a stop at the local pubs for a Hi and Hello to all the festive faces. Whatever your plans, Shaldon village is the perfect place to be.   Boxing Day Have you got your fancy-dress outfit sorted? Well if not you best get a wriggle on. The Boxing Day fancy dress three- legged race is not something to be left to the last minute. Starting point this year is at the Ness. The route covers each of Shaldon’s hostelries. Registration is at the Ness from 10.30 am, judging of costumes at 11.45, and the Race starts at 12. Anyone can enter or go and watch. Entrants run, walk or crawl around the village pubs, enjoying a quick half pint (or squash for children) and the first team back wins! www.shaldonwatercarnival.co.uk  ...

Supermoon- Low tide

| 7 days ago | Blogging

  Last nights supermoon ( perigee syzygy ) was a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the moon’s perigee, the distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit. It appears to be slightly bigger and brighter than normal. The furthest point in its orbit is called the apogee. The New Year skies will be brightened up by two appearances in January. The Old Moon or Wolf Moon on   January 1-2 and the Blue Moon on January 31. The River Teign was still tricklling out when this was taken on December 4th. It looked like you could walk to Teignmouth.  ...
