First batch of photos from last week

These are the first photos from last week when I had both Babs and Monika staying.

On the Saturday I took Monika to Burrow Mump and then on to Glastonbury and Wells.

The ruin of the church at the top of Burrow Mump is one of my very favourite places. The hill isn't that big, but because it rises out of a flat landscape it is still very prominent. I always find it hard to draw myself away, but we had much more sightseeing to do.

We had lunch in Glastonbury and had a quick look around, enough to satisfy Monika's love of the place for the time being, then it was off to Wells, England's smallest city.

Wells Cathedral dominates the small city from every angle. This is the imposing west front.

My one and only shot at wedding photography - and I don't even know who they were.

Sunflowers in the Vicars' Close.

Babs had arrived by the Monday, which was a Bank Holiday, and the three of us set off for Exmoor. We took a picnic, which we enjoyed at Tarr Steps.

Then we went on to my little secret glade near Dunkery Beacon. Babs has an affinity with trees and couldn't resist this one.......

Next will be a late afternoon and evening spent at Lyme Regis.
