I was awoken at 5am this morning by rain lashing against the windows. The Tricia affect was in full force!
As the car was loaded at 9:15 miraculously the rain had abated and it was just grey and dull! So bad had the rain been that we did find a flooded road.
Off to Budleigh Salteron. Birds were - Raven (year tick!), Black Tailed Godwit, Mipit, Little Egret and Cetti's.
The cricket pitch.
Something more interesting amongst the gulls.
The sea was a bit rough.
The gulls "riding" the waves
So on to Barrington Court. As we were eating our Vegetable Soup (very nice) the sum came out!!!!!!!
Barrington was playing host to CHUTFEST 10 which gives producers of home-made preserves, conserves amd jams the opportunity to bring their surplus to Barrington and swap them for others. There was also a food fair where you could try local chutneys, jams, sausages, cheese, cakes and wine. Some of us didn't indulge others... tut tut.
The chocolate and beetroot cake was lovely!
