Spring is sprung in the lane

Looking up at StMichael's church at the top of Watery Lane

Our old hospital now replaced by a brand new one. It's fate undecided

A birthday treat - once I can get the lid off!

We have the same perfume! - Of course with my shocking sense of smell I have no idea what it's actually like, but my beloved bought it and likes it, so that's good.

Is that Kildare Lodge in Minehead, on left hand side of A39 as one drives into town from the east?

We used to stay on Dunster Beach in the chalets and one year my parents paid for us to celebrate our third wedding anniversary with an evening meal out. Problem was 18 month old son, holiday makers don't have childminders so we took him, and his high chair there, very early evening.

Other diners were horrified but son recognised it was a special occasion and was perfect. All dressed up, he ate pasta garlic shells, followed by ice cream all washed down with orange juice. Cannot remember what we ate! Well son is now 30 and married.

Would love to go back and holiday at Dunster Beach again, but, for reasons I will not post here, it may not be possible.

First went to Dunster some 50 years ago, British Rail then steamed into Minehead.

Thanks, Pixie Mum

GG: thank you:)

Parsnip: I'm hoping all is well with your family in Japan after listening to the radio.

Maggie: yes it's great to have the end in sight. I really enjoy seeing your photographs and relish the contrasts.

Sharon: snap! In fact when it has mingled with our natural smell we probably smell quite different - but delicious I'm sure:)

Pixie: yes that sounds like the Kildare. I have to confess I've never been to Dunster beach.
There is still a steam train
(tourist) that goes from Minehead to Bishops Lydiard which all our grandchildren have enjoyed.

Do go. Although a visit doesn't give the atmosphere if you drive right through, or indeed amble, to the golf course end (it's a no through road) you will see some of the nature reserve, views of Dunster and the hear the steam railway. Have travelled on that plenty of times.
Some chalets are owned by residents of Minehead.

Very peaceful site, no razzmataz, no entertainment but calm and peaceful. Would love to return for hols and indeed to have my own.

Regards, PixieMum

Judy: thank goodness our problem is solved. Until next time:)

Scarlet: I did it in the end. I didn't know whether to screw or pull.
