Refreshing time

On Saturday we got back from our week away in Minehead Somerset (Sat-Sat). John went to a scripture union camp (Sun-Sat). We all spent Saturday Night together and most of Sunday . We worshipped in a local Church in the morning then dropped off John in the afternoon, he was only staying 20 miles away from us. He was a little excited to say the least!

Weather was not too good at beginning of week but it improved as week went along.

On Monday we were looking around the waterfront when we decided on the spur of the moment to go on an open topped bus from Minehead to Lynmouth. The views were stunning but it wasn't a journey for the faint hearted as it was windy, very narrow and steep lanes and steep slops on both sides. It was definately worth it though..

Tuesday we explored the town we were staying in. Our apartment was a stone's throw from the beach and in the heart of the town . Below shows you where we were staying and how close we were to seafront.

Its a very pretty town and the seafront is lovely , its a shame that it was so commercial (so many takeaways)! I had my first paddle in the sea.

Wednesday we had a day out on the steam train, it was wonderful. It was like going back in time and we stopped off in a place called Watchet for a fish and chip lunch.

Thursday we went to Barnstaple to visit my husbands sister and family. It was a lovely day out, great to see my nephews. We went to a nearby park and had great fun.

Friday we spent the day on the beach, it was wonderful weather. Finished the week off beautifully.

We had a lovely week and feel physically and spiritually refreshed.
