Hello Somerset, my old friend…. June 29, 2013

We recently went on holiday to my home County of Somerset!….. We stayed with some friends at my Mum’s caravan on the coast, just next to my favourite place… the Quantocks….


There was kite flying, cider farm visiting, fossil hunting, steam train journeying, castle exploring, forest walking, animal stroking…… We even happened to be there at the summer solstice, and saw the sun go down whilst on the beach…. If I could, I would go back tomorrow!
