Last week when we had the lovely day out in Sidmouth, on the way home we called here
the lovely Donkey Santuary this place has a very special air about it, a place of love and calmness creeps over you as your walking round, we have been many times and its always the same, a lady remarked as we were in one of the sheds where the donkeys were feeding and resting, "gosh its like being in church" and it was, a lovely hush filled the air, just the quiet sound of donkeys eating and dozing.
Its a great day out, there's a lovely cafe serving coffee and cakes and light meals, although we didn't indulge as just eaten the huge pasty Sidmouth. Lots of seats to have a rest, it was a bit misty so didn't do that, but in the summer or a sunny day its lovely, you can walk down to the beach at Branscombe, it only says its a mile but its a good walk! A shop selling the usual donkey related things, but they do have some nice Christmas cards later in the year. If your really lucky and there in the late afternoon and its been raining, you can help to take the donkeys inside, ready for bed. And best of all its all free, which always pleases hubby and I think he loves it too, although he always says he's not as enthusiastic as me and eccentric daughter! but never complains if we say we want to go.
So here are some of the furry friends...
So there we have it, oh just another pic, a new shed is always interesting!
Bye till next time
