So after A Trip Up the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire the last dinner we had before heading down to Minehead was a lovely venison burger with potatoe wedges and some mixed vegetables (kinda like ratatouille).
This is the room I was staying in, can you see me in the mirror 😀
It used to be my bedroom originally when we first moved into the house, then when I came back after graduating I switched to the back bedroom (which is larger) to allow for my computer, TV and so on. It was good to be back there, coincidentally my Mom has sold the house now and is looking for a new smaller place.
You might remember Minehead from my previous posts(Memories of Minehead, Part I, Part II & Part III) , it’s a small coastal town on the Western coast of England in the county of Somerset (it’s just South of Bristol). Sadly the weather was pretty grey and it drizzled most of the time, there was no sunset to speak of so I didn’t take so many pictures this time.
We did manage a fantastic sinful lunch in the sun though before the rain and wind blew us back into the house for a cup of tea. Check this out….baked Camembert with freshly baked crusty bread….yum! Served with pickles (beetroot, onions and onion jam) and copious amounts of wine!
My Mom and her sister Jean.
We had a walk down the seafront and checked out Minehead lifeboat station.
The RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) is a fantastic charity organization in Britain that has been around since 1824. All of the lifeboat men that rescue people at sea volunteers! All of the boats and gear are bought from donations!

It’s a very interesting place with a lot of history attached, I really loved this painting they had in the lifeboat house.
