A bit of an Exmoor day! ;-)

Here we are in Dulverton...a lovely little village on the edge of Exmoor.

It's Sunday and it's pretty peaceful; the sun is shining and

as we stroll around, we admire the beauty of the surroundings.

I like this village very much... and I love this little abode...

And Mr S points out this sign on the wall...we laugh.

What humour!

I think I could've stayed all day in Dulverton,

especially as I discovered an old bookshop with some

of my favourite 'Miss Read' books in the window (along with

the Agatha Christie paperbacks.)

I purchase, 'Friends at Thrush Green'...and make my exit.

I could've bought the lot as they are the hardback copies with those delightful

illustrations by John S. Goodall!

I adore these books and have read them so many times!

With a smile on my face, on I go, to...


In contrast, Dunster is busy; exceedingly busy!

It's a pretty little place but we don't do crowds of people terribly well!

Dunster and lunch both done...on we go!


We don't stop long in Porlock and we soon find ourselves 

dealing with Porlock Hill!

A piece of cake!! 

Thankfully I am not driving! ;-)

But just look at this view from the top!

And there's Wales, in the distance.

Next we head for Lynton and Lynmouth.

It's heaving with people when we get there and so we decide to drive on!

(Hence no photos!)

We've enjoyed our Sunday trip and I look forward to

bedtime reading and, maybe, returning to that bookshop, one day.

You two fit so much into one day. We, seem to manage until coffee calls and the we always search out a walk. And it would not be up Porlock Hill.

I love that view from the road along to Lynton and Lynmouth. Shame you couldn't stop, I was in Lynton at the craft centre last sunday!! Give me a shout next time you may come up this way and I'll point you in the direction of the easiest parking spots!!
Love the photos of Dunster and Dulverton too.
