We very rarely eat out so it has become an annual event to celebrate with a good meal / outing during the day. On this occasion we headed to The Swan at Wedmore.
Just look at that lovely selection of fresh bread!!
Wedmore is a gorgeously quaint little village. It's definitely in a more affluent area of Somerset and it is so lovely to visit! We pootled around the little artsy shops and admired beautiful gardens and floral displays...
We've passed this in the car many times although you cannot grasp the true splendour of the building from the road. This is a wonderful windmill - smaller in stature than all other's that I've seen.
The blades looked magnificent standing tall against the blue sky.
The children absolutely loved playing around the mill - spies, tag and hide and seek were the order of the day. They played happily for the afternoon - such buddies and so content - bliss.
As I went to photograph the view towards Brent Knoll from the far side of the site (the big hill on the horizon)
I noticed this:
I'm such a romantic I loved the sentiment - it reads "Nigel and Claire - In love with each other, In love with this place". Padlocked to the back of the Windmill. I returned to my spot on a nearby bench, told Ben all about it and he went to inspect it too. It somehow felt poignant to notice someone else's declaration of love on a day we were celebrating ours!!
Aww... isn't love grand? . Hope you are feeling a bit of love wherever you are...
Today I'm joining in with these lovely blog parties!
