We stopped in Bristol – I lived there for almost four years in the 90s, so showed H a few things… the obligatory bridge shot.
On Monday we stopped at Wookey Hole. The mirror maze was excellent!
Tuesday it poured down all day – bad weather. We drove to A la Ronde near Exmouth and found it fabulous.
Wednesday we drove to Torquay but got back in time for some kite flying at Devon Cliffs beach. H helped me and loved it.
Thursday we went to the Devon County Show with Rachel and family (and it was Rachel’s birthday) – and we came across a stand for the Co-Operative Funeral Care. The one to the rear is Japanese themed, while to the front a motorbike sidecar hearse. Indeed.
We left Devon Cliffs and spent most of a day at Bicton Park Botanical Gardens – there are loads of things to do and a fabulous play area. H and I were dancing when this was taken.
Friday and Saturday night we stayed at Rachel’s, and on Saturday we drove to Drogo Castle – England’s newest castle which is currently suffering from terrible water damage. I saw a programme about it a year or so ago, so to see the restoration work was interesting. The gardens are excellent and there’s tons of bluebells. H loved it!
