Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a good weekend. Have you been up to much?
On Saturday we headed for Exmoor, Somerset. It is an area which I like very much.
As some of you know, Alan has a website called Somerset 3d. Every week he updates the website with a Somerset town or village not yet featured. This means that he has to drive around Somerset's towns and villages on a regular basis in order to have a constant supply of photos. Alan keeps the prettier places for when we both go exploring and some of the more industrial or plainer looking places for when I am not accompanying him.
We drove through and walked around several pretty little villages. We stopped in this village to have some lunch.
After lunch and having a walk we drove to Dulverton
Dulverton is a nice little town. I had not been there before and look forward to returning there again.
We arrived towards the end of the afternoon so unfortunately some of the shops were already closed.
I spent quite a bit of time in this shop, Number Seven. They have a very good selection of cards, gifts and books. I had a nice chat with the lady who served me. So many lovely things, I could not come back empty handed!
I love this parasol! It can also be used as an umbrella too as it is waterproof.
I went in to this shop pictured above but as it was quite busy, I decided to go elsewhere and come back to take some photos. Unfortunately they were closed not long after I left! The exterior was so beautifully displayed. They had a French style bench painted in blue and some pots plants on the window sill. It would have made a great photo. Never mind, next time...
As we left Dulverton we went in search of a couple more villages to photograph.
We parked in a lay by to look at the map before setting out again to this village
I love these old sign posts, I hope that the highways never get rid of them.
On our way back home we drove past the Glastonbury Tor. You probably need to click on picture to see it better.
This is the sight that greeted us by the time we returned home.
I had to lighten the photo a bit as it came out too dark
I came back home with a few things
I am very pleased with this find, I was lucky to get it as the shop I went in to closed their doors just a minute or so after I walked in.
Yesterday the weather wasn't brilliant, it rained so we stayed in and got on with some work.
The sun is back out again day and I have enjoyed putting the washing out to dry. I love doing that but I'm not that keen on doing the ironing afterwards...;-)
