Our travels took us to Cheddar Gorge in Somerset this week.A Limestone gorge in the Mendip Hills.
Before any one comments, "ONE OF US", has spelt Cheddar wrongly... don't look at me !
We last went to Cheddar a couple of years ago, one week before Easter, it was quiet and lucky us, it seemed we had the whole place to ourselves. I remember it being a sunny day. Not that much sun in the photo's taken this week, but the weed behind the waterfall looks just as green with or without the sun.
Don't think the ducks minded either way.
I can't mention Cheddar Gorge without mentioning the Caves. A tourist delight.
Among the tourist shops they have added a Christmas shop. It wasn't there on our last visit, lots of twinkly lights and things that glitter.
I couldn't help but be drawn to it like a magnet or maybe like a Magpie. As everyone keeps telling me, you can never start early enough for Christmas.... It even had smells of Christmas inside the shop. Can't do smells on here yet, but I'm sure that will come in time.
We were really more interested in the gorge itself.
It's much better if you drive through it listening to something that inspires you to make it to the top.
The reason why we thought you might like to enjoy the ride up.
The car now shines like a new pin again, before anyone comments about the windscreen, so through the dirty window, hope you enjoy your ride.
We also took the long route home, through Glastonbury, past Glastonbury Tor. No ride up here, it's a walking trip. For this one your on your own, or just view from afar. For anyone who is interested they are still clearing away the festival site.
I know from my last post, you might have expected a new set of paws around the cottage.
Not this time, but we will keep looking. We all know that rescue dogs are very special and need just the right home. Some love cats and some don't. Here in the Cottage it helps if dogs and cats get along.
If you haven't heard from me this week via blog land or other means, I promise you will eventually.
So much seems to have gone on this week,I have even missed some of the tennis. Mark has updated Soggibottom for me, although I only noticed today. Aren't kids the best ?
The garden looks just as I love it to be, a mini jungle, and it's nearly the 4th of July.
The nearest celebration to the 4th of July for us is Mark's birthday on the 10th.
Happy 30th BIRTHDAY MARK Sparky Brand
30 YEARS OLD. Aren't Mum's and Dad's great too ?
