Seriously Sunny in Somerset

On Saturday mummy and I travelled all the way to Taunton in Somerset to visit great auntie June. My auntie Teresa (Tee Tee) came with us too and we had so much fun together. On the way there we passed loads of cool places like Heathrow Airport where the planes were coming into land right over the motorway. We also passed Stonehenge and some villages with funny names like Chicklade and Henlade. It was a beautiful day and we saw lots of hills and valleys that looked like my patchwork quilt and enormous oak trees in different shades of green, brown and red - it was amazing and helped us through a long journey.

On Saturday afternoon, auntie June took us to the seaside town of Dawlish. Auntie June couldn't wait to buy me my first bucket and spade, but when we got to the beach, the sand was all gone because the tide was in. The sea was amazing though and we watched the waves crashing onto the beach. We also took a stroll along the river and saw some black swans and huge seagulls.

On Sunday we went to the best place ever. The Stable Cottage Tea Room in Triscombe serve gorgeous cream teas and everyone stuffed themselves with scones, jam and clotted cream. The tea room is situated by the Quantock Hills and the view was stunning.

It wasn't long before we had to head home. Daddy spent the weekend in Amsterdam and was waiting for us at grandma Wendy's.
