After A Trip Up The Hill and a Ride on West Somerset Steam Railway the next morning we started off with a solid English Breakfast again, this time we had the full works with Black Pudding!
Unfortunately this was the only food shot I took at my aunt’s place in Minehead…she’s such a superb cook we just wolfed all the food down without thinking of taking pictures of it! It’s such a relaxing place too and alcohol served with every meal (apart from breakfast..). We had a bottle of bubbly every night I think.
Anyway, after that we just walked a little way across town to the mini-golf course at the park (Blenheim Gardens), there was a brass band playing too! The weather wasn’t great, but at least it didn’t rain.
I came joint first I think, a bit rust at the old putting.
My aunt is pretty serious…she used to be quite a golfer.
My Mom wasn’t so great, she had some funny shots though!
After that we went for a wonder around in historic Dunster which has some really, really OLD buildings and some really, really AWESOME cream teas. This is the famous view of Dunster will the old market in the foreground and the castle peaking out on the hill from behind.
Finding a good cream tea is not as easy as you might think..It requires good fresh scones which are crispy but soft and not rock hard, good quality jam with plenty of fruit, fresh clotted cream and high quality English tea!
This is what the scones look like all loaded up.
We went for a walk around after that to burn off some of the calories we just ingested where I noticed this cute flower pot.
And someone who had a fascination with garden gnomes.
Saw this beautiful white flower, not sure what species it is.
Then we popped into Dunster Church, not as fantastic as Worcester Cathedral of course, but still very nice.
It has some beautiful stained glass windows.
It was very peaceful.
On the way out I noticed this shop, Harwood’s of Dunster the first patentee of the automatic watch!
