not well. We send our good wishes, for a speedy recovery and hope to

This touring park is “exclusively for adults” and they call it “ The
garden in the valley”. Those of our members, who are gardeners spent
quite some time naming the plants and trees. No that wasn't the quiz,
it was (ding- bats) which tested our brains!!!!!!.
The nearest town was Wiveliscombe, know locally as Wivvy, one of the
shops was called the 'The Pig Carousel', didn't find out why, but did
take a photo. One of the garages had 3 Austin Healey cars in
showroom, guess who took a picture of that ?
Coffee mornings where held in the Millennium Barn, Thursday &
Friday evening,spent chatting. Fish & chip supper on Saturday,
and Peter supplied the dessert(fruit salad with a difference) must get
Days were spent visiting the local places of interest, far too many to
do, but these included Dunster, Dunster Castle & Gardens,
Cleeve Abbey, a trip on the West Somerset Railway, some were lucky and
saw the engine, “Tornado”. Hestercombe Gardens,Minehead, to name just a
few of the attractions in this part of Somerset.
Peter and Joy led a walk on Saturday morning. Having reached the local
pub, we had a very welcome drink, photos taken by a fellow drinker,
poor man, he must have used at least five different cameras.
Monday evening,where did the time go? The rally ended, with a
scrumptious meal at the Fitzhead Inn, the route to the Inn was not for
the faint hearted, very narrow lanes, but worth the effort of keeping
your fingers crossed that nothing was coming the other way!!
Thanks, Joy and Peter, for running a super rally, where did you say
your next one was? Must make sure that our request for a booking form,
is in the post at the earliest opportunity, we wouldn't want to miss
