We looked without any luck for fossils on Helwell beach
To prove we were still vaguely fit we walked up Dunkery Beacon, 1,703 feet or 519 metres -slowly - it's the highest point on Exmoor. Last climbed by us in 2004.

I dragged Col ( not quite kicking and screaming) to the Clarkes Village shopping outlet place in Street because, even if we normally avoid all activities that require good clothes, when you have a daughter getting married you have to have something decent to wear. We are both now sorted and he agreed that it was much easier than going shopping in Ipswich. I resisted the temptations of the Le Creuset and Denby outlets and also avoided the Cadbury's,Thorntons and Lindt shops. I know........ how virtuous!....... you can almost see the halo!
We walked around the medieval village of Dunster, over the old packhorse bridge

The West Somerset Preserved Railway had a special Steam Gala on Thursday so Col turned into a train spotter, going in and out to see them passing by.
Next holiday in about another 3 years?
