Jez and Di from the pub have just got back from a week in Minehead. They went on the steam train to Watchet!

Eryl Shields said...

Did you take your grandma with you?!

Pat said...

John.g: how lovely - I do hope they liked it?

Parsnip: thank you.It wasn't a very nice day so the walk petered out and we hung out in Watchet

Eryl: no I'm the...h har har!

That's right tease me! I'm still not any nearer to moving and it's driving me crazy.
Sx

Pat said...

Scarlet: take heart love - everything sells in time and once it's gone you'll forget all the hassle. Meanwhile you can enjoy deciding where to fetch up.
I haven't forgotten the tagging and plan to do it tomorrow which is free. I've checked a dozen times as I missed an appointment yesterday which I hate doing. It's not enough to have it in my diary - it has to be on the kitchen calendar as well.

What a beautiful, rugged land. Wonderful photos, Pat.

Pat said...

Debra: you're right - it is rugged; there have been some cliff falls and quite recently a boy swept out to sea.
The kids tease me when I once said 'We must hurry - the tide is rushing in and three hours later it was in the same place:)

R. Sherman said...

Low tide, I take it.

Looks like the perfect place for a stroll.

Cheers.

lom said...

I have visited Watchet but never walked there, it looks like the type of place I would love to though

Pat said...

High Randall - 'lo tide. Sorry old Danny Kaye joke.
Not perfect for me alas. Too rocky and slippery.

LOM: you've just snuck in under the radar! Funny thing about Watchet - you either like it or not - no halfway it seems. It sure has lots of character and I like to visit but not live there.

Kim Ayres said...

With a train like that, were you tempted to take off your red bloomers and wave them at the train to warn it of impending danger?

Pat said...

Kim: what a lark that would have been. My grand-daughter would not have been amused however. I'm trying to get back in her good books:)

Kate Lord Brown said...

Hello Pat - just to say I did get your email and will reply - my computer blew up (literally) and I've lost everything on the hard disk (yes, no recent work was backed up, devastating ...) Once I can send email will be in touch x

Pat said...

Kate: everybody's nightmare - I'm so sorry. I do hope it was very recent and still fresh in your mind. Don't worry about me - there's no rush.

Cinnamon said...

How lovely to be out in the fresh air. We have so many beautiful places around us- lovely photos Pat :)

Emil Kirstein said...

Lovely scenery. Appreciate your consideration for grandmas (and grandpas.) My wife and I have the same problem:) Blessings.

Pat said...

Cinnamon: it was worth taking a year to decide where to retire to. In spite of being a bit off the beaten track we've never regretted it.

Emil: we Gramps must stick together:)

Guyana-Gyal said...

A SHORT walk?

Pat said...

GG: it really was in comparison and I am presently nursing my toes back to health after the bat hunt. No down hill walking for a while.
