GIRL'S DAY OUT - MARGARET IN CHARGE.

This was a comfort stop and the map should give you and idea of where we were. We had alresdy had a coffee break at Wheddon Cross and as usual there was a lot of vital chatter and only Margaret was really aware of where we were. so please don't ask difficult questions.

During the Planck Era following the Big Bang, how did the strong and week nuclear forces separate from Gravity?

Or was that a difficult question?

As for where you were, well England, obviously and as usual the photos are lovely, the conversation sounds like fun and I'm glad you enjoyed yourself and are home safe.

Cheers.

Pat, I love to read about your travels. I wish my mother can do this too, I keep telling her, this is what she should be doing.

Dry stone walls fascinate me...the skill to build them, I hear it's a dying art, is that true?

PI said...

Randall: I can really rely on you and John G and Nea to take the Michael can't I ?

Judy: I resisted the temptation because the girls were sitting in the car, waiting for me to finish taking photos and it was raining:)

John:Engerland!

gledwood: drop in anytime!

GG: I'm sure your mother has lots of friends, but pals like my old three are hard to come by. We sometimes meet up weighed down by the cares of the world and every single time we leave each other feeling great and able to cope with what life throws at us.
I think dry stone-walling is a dying art; there are very few skilled craftsmen left on the moor.

Kim Ayres said...

When you say you needed to stop for a comfort break and then show a picture of a bridge over a stream...

Did you have to hang over the side?

barbie2be said...

what a lovely little bridge.

michele sent me. :)

PI said...

Kim: no there was a building, but much prefer the open air to smelly loos.

PI said...

Hi barbie! Welcome!

wordnerd said...

What a charming little bridge! Here from Michele's!

Janet said...

Oh, I love that bridge, so beautiful! Hi, Michele sent me :-)

mar said...

It looks like such a beautiful place!!
I am sorry you couldn't get to my comment box via Michele's, I appreciate your visit anyways :)
Have a glorious weekend!

PI said...

Hi Janet and wordnerd!

Mar: thank you! I just wish I knew what I was doing wrong.

Somewhere near water? I can't get any closer than that.

Granny said...

Hi. Isn't it great to have friends to pal around with?

Especially when they have a sense of direction.

Lovely little bridge.

PI said...

That's good Hoss! I suspect you were a boy scout - if you had those in America. Google Lord Baden- Powell. You must have had something similar.

Ann: I certainly need friends - with a SOD. Ooh that looks rude, but you know what I mean:)

I love Exmoor. It's a real part of my childhood. My parents used to pile us all into big old car and take us up on Exmoor for a picnic and to pick wortleberries (that's blueberries, although the wild ones are smaller than the ones you buy these days). My mother would later make wortleberry pie.

PI said...

AMKT: Now in Lancashire that was wimbry pie. I expect we all ended up with the same blue mouth!

panthergirl said...

I, too, am curious about that comfort stop!!! ;)

Seriously, I love it when you post pictures of your travels! So interesting!

Here via michele today.

PI said...

Hi panther girl. when we stopped a t Wheddon Cross, the outside loo wall had a lovely pastoral mosaic. I should have snapped that; then your imaginations would have been sated!

Terri said...

Gorgeous area...and photos. I've been to north Devon, Exmoor and Lynton. Really beautiful! Bought a Christmas ornament in Lynton and think of that place each year when I hang it on my tree.
Michele said to say hi.......

PI said...

Hi Terri: I wonder where you live ? Will look you up:)
