After telling you about the last day of our holiday first, I'll now take you back to the beginning. We set out about 8a.m. and drove through Stone, Eccleshall and down through Telford and Bridgnorth, stopping for breakfast on the way to Kidderminster. We joined the M5 as far as Weston-Super-Mare which was our first real stop and leg stretch. I wasn't sure what to expect as I'd never been before but was pleasantly surprised.
There was a lot of work going on along the front and of course, around the pier, which was being rebuilt after being destroyed by fire in 2008.
Weston has everything that you would expect a seaside town to have like a big wheel
vast beaches to walk along
a place of entertainment and a retreat from windy weather
and donkeys, the real ones above and another kind as seen below....
we found the one above in the entrance to a coffee shop and the one below....
in the Museum. I'm guessing that there would be more around the town but these were the only two we spotted.
It was time to move on to find our accommodation for the night - the next couple of days we spent exploring the Somerset coast from Watchett to Porlock and beyond. I'll be back with more in the next post.
