First call this morning was at the West Country Motor Home Accessories Centre to decide on the additions for our motorhome. TV for the Bedroom, Barbecue, Gas Detector, Safe and Tie-down Rails for the garage.

From there we headed into Weston-Super-Mare to do a bit of shopping for linen and a couple of chairs for the Motorhome, and we had soup for lunch while there.

Glastonbury was our next stop where we found a park in the main street and after visiting the tourist information centre, set off for the Rural Life Museum because it was raining and we didn’t fancy wandering the streets. A magnificent fourteenth-century Abbey Barn is the centrepiece of the Museum. The barn and farm buildings which surround a courtyard contain displays depicting local rural activities such as mud horse fishing, peat digging, cider making and the tools used in each endeavour. We found it fascinating and spent the best part of three hours there.

After returning to The Fox and Goose we had some time to relax before Andrew picked us up and took us to the Watchfield Inn in Highbridge, a lovely old pub built in the 1800’s where we had steak dinners and the boys had a couple of games of pool – Andrew won both!
