Over the course of the trip, we went to two beaches and six yarn stores (ah ha ha ha). Chris and Alex did a three-hour “rope walk in the trees” activity one afternoon. We visited Morwellham Quay (a mining village that’s being restored to a period place), took a train trip into a copper mine, saw a lot of livestock, ate a lot of cream teas, visited various cities and towns, swam in the campground’s pool, went to the Royal Green Jackets museum (95th Rifles), and learned to curse Bank of America, who put a freeze on our ATM card and wouldn’t believe us when we (securely) emailed them about our travel plans. I finished knitting three projects and started two more. Finally got to see “Going Postal” (and upon my return to the US, learned that it IS being released here, but not until September). Oh yeah! We visited the Discworld Emporium in Wincanton and I bought a load of goodies. (The proprietor also gave Alex a free whoopee cushion from Boffo’s.)
My brain’s a bit fogged right now, but I do intend to write more about the trip a little later. Let’s see if the pictures format correctly this time.
