We have a good look round fascinating
Glastonbury and all its wonderful mystic, psychic, healing, crystal and
gifts and arts and crafts shops. A couple of close ups of amazing
shops and places within the Glastonbury Experience area as well as some
Arriving back at our Langport
cottage, Belinda enthuses to her sister on the phone about Glastonbury,
then we head out to the local pub for a drink in the warm evening
sunshine before going to the Cardamom Indian Restaurant in Langport and
enjoy a really yummy Indian meal!
Mike studies the Fleet Air Arm Museum guide before we look
at all the WW1 and WW2 aircraft inside, Belinda presses some buttons in
the Merlin Experience, we join the Flight Deck for a take-off before
finishing with a look round Concorde and Mike trying to fly.
We climb the zig-zag path up to the top of
Brean Down and walk along the peninsula to the old fort which we
explore. Returning by the old military road, with great views to
Weston-Super-Mare, the wind blows our voices away and we finish with an
Ice Cream on the beach.
Belinda pours the cider, Mike
cooks the evening meal and we sit down to enjoy both! Cheers!
Belinda buys the tickets while
Mike has a look at the steam engine of the West Somerset Railway before
climbing aboard. A look around Dunster later and we're heading
back after watching the train coming into the station and the engine
shunting. Lots of steam train shots!
After inspecting the Cheddar
Gorge guide we head into cool Gough's Cave followed by the Cheddar Man
Museum. After lunch we visit Cox's cave and climb Jacobs Ladder,
admiring the view from the top. Finally, we take the topless tour
bus along the stunning Gorge.
On a hot day we climb to the top
of Glastonbury Tor and look at the tower and viewpoint, then admire the
peaceful Chalice Well Gardens from where we spot the Tor again and
finish with a look at the old ruins of Glastonbury Abbey.
