Stuart and I love Dartmoor, in deepest Devon, and when my parents came to visit, we absolutely had to show them a bit of it.
Here's my mother; I love how she looks like some sort of Wild West cowgirl.
Oo, and spooky, is that the Hound of the Baskervilles? No, it is a poodle.
We still got a bit of sinister atmosphere, though. Good ol' Dartmoor.
And, of course, aliens. Philip Reeve here is only slightly surprised. He wrote the Larklight trilogy and a Doctor Who story and now he is used to aliens.
I love this shot of Sam by the lake.
Hello, Philip! Hello, Sarah! The Reeves were awesome, letting so many McIntyres descend on them at once.
Obligatory family shots:
Dad and me, geeking out in the sunshine:
Fat shaggy ponies! What bliss!
Oo, is that an elf there, sketching in the mossy forest?
Uh oh, broken pencil lead!
I can really see where Philip gets his material for the Goblins books, that place is like walking into a story.
Huge thanks to the Reeves for a fabulous stay!
