No finished cards today and after yesterday's dampness I thought I'd add a brighter picture!

We made it to Torquay yesterday - nearly didn't make it back.  The roads were fine for the journey down but the constant rain meant after a couple of big floods on the way home we then came across a road closure on the A303.  The long and the short of it (mainly the long!) was that having to also avoid the M5 and Taunton we came home via Bridport - to those in the vicinity you will know that is not an entirely direct route.

But after discussing whose door we could turn up at in the middle of the night we did make it.  Very thankful we are luckier than some of the houses we drove past last night that were bailing out.

On a cheerier note - this picture was taken last Sunday in a moment of dryness.  The day after the wedding we went to we climbed Beacon Hill which is on the Quantocks and from the top looks out across the coastline and towards Dunster and Minehead (and Hinkley Point the other way!).


  1. That was definitely the scenic route to come back from Devon - glad you made it OK though.

  2. Wow Jill - that sounds like a voyage and a half! Went down to South Molton today and the Exe was definitely raging.......! Had a fairly good journey back to the end of the Ilminster by-pass and then found the A303 was closed because of an accident..........and the rest of the story you will know!
