Today saw us going on a little day trip to...
Sidmouth, a lovely genteel town on the East Devon Coast, with lovely red cliffs and Regency buildings, it takes you back to days gone by, and lies at the mouth of the River Sid.
I first went to Sidmouth when I was about 15/16, we had gone to visit my Aunty J and Uncle H who lived in Taunton, Uncle H was my Grandmas brother, so Grandma and Grandad came too. We went to Sidmouth on a coach trip, all of us and we sat on the prom eating sandwiches even taking deckchairs with us!
So it holds a special place of memories as sadly non of these lovely people are with us anymore.
Lots of shops theres something for everyone...
This shop has been open about 2 years, but her lovely shop is spoilt by all the scarves hung outside across the window stopping you seeing the lovely things in the window, surely there must be a better place to display scarves!
Like pretty teasets and lace cloths
Also copycats of Cath Kidston bags
Pretty bedding, even if there is SALE signs enhancing the window!
Pretty Church gateway
No day trip out would be complete without a rummage in a charity shop would it, one or two in Sidmouth, nothing special except for the Cats Protection, where these lovelys popped up...
Interesting meat selection
We had a pasty from here for lunch, but forgot to take a pic as that desparate to eat it, and it was delicious. We had it in here...
Miss Marples shelter, Agatha Christie's, Sleeping Murder filmed in Sidmouth, with the lovely Joan Hickson playing Miss Marple.
Anyone fancy a dip! What a brave trio.
Posh hotels, wonder how many people have revolved around these doors
and of course ever hopeful, waiting for a bit of pasty!
Hope you enjoyed the day trip to Sidmouth, we certainly did, we also called at the Donkey Sanctury, but our furry friends will have to wait until next time.
