We visited Beer on the Devon coast.
It was very pretty and quaint. A proper fishing village.
We also found an amazing wet fish shop and will definitely be returning as the crab was apparently the yummiest the Big M had ever tasted!
And when inigo’s a little but older we plan to go mackerel fishing which is a popular pastime in Beer.
And looking at interesting exhibits look me the famous mosaic above of depictions of the Somerset Dragon emblem
The Big M rather enjoyed a quote she found – it reads: “the Somerset people are of a large size and strong but in my opinion very slow and lazy… and very much given to drinking and eating” – well there’s something to aspire to at least!
This afternoon we went to a farm open day down the road in South Petherton.
We learnt loads – for instance as a nation we eat 26 million eggs a day and UK farmers produce 36 1/2 million gallons of milk each day – crazy.
We had a picnic lunch
Special treat – we went to the car wash. I’ve been wanting to try one out for ages!!!
It was super cool. First the robotic arm squired soap all over us, then 3 massive green, spongy, roller things set about cleaning us and then an enormous hair dryer gave us a blow dry. The car was sparkling.
Sadly it rained 20 mins later and we drove through lots of mud…
