Bank Holiday weekend

We had visitors for the bank holiday weekend so did the tourist bit for a couple of days and went to Minehead in Somerset on the Monday, via Exmoor, Lymouth and Porlock.

The pretty cottages near the harbour. We walked down there but it got windier and windier till we could hardly stand up!

View towards the the harbour area.

View towards Butlins of the sea front.

The steam railway - one of the engines awaiting the demo of the new turntable that was built since we were last there.

Lovely brooding moor. It was blowing a gale of course as the clouds started to come in off the sea behind us.

Stopped briefly to take some pictures on the way home. I was really glad of the chance as we usually just zoom past everywhere!

Exmoor ponies - very beautiful and hardy.

I love moorland.

This was taken from the car as we headed towards Lynton and Lynmouth.
