Mattiscombe in the sun

Today we took a trip to the sea-side. Fantastic sunshine and a lovely beach with hardly anyone else on it! To get to Mattiscombe you have to drive out to Start Point Lighthouse. Just before you get there you arrive at a car park. From there it is a 10 minute walk down to the beach. As you can see we had a great time.

Visit to the American Museum at Bath

I have been wanting to visit the American Museum for a long time and our time at Weston was the perfect opportunity. Lots of interesting stuff there, almost too much for one visit. Lots of fantastic quilts on show, and the chance to step inside a teepee!

Camping at W-S-M

Here you can see the van with its awning. The inside of Lydia's tent( she wanted to sleep separately).Lydia and Julia playing Scrabble and Phil sitting enjoying the outdoors!!
We had beautiful sunny weather at the beginning of the week, a bit wet at the weekend and then better for our last two days.
Travelling up and down to exams went without a hitch, except for needing a new section of exhaust pipe!
Needless to say it is a great relief that Lydia's exams are over- now we just have to wait for the results!!
