Watchet is one of our favourite coastal towns to visit and being just 15 miles away is one of the closest. The town itself is over 1000 years old with the harbour being used for trade over many centuries. Now it is a pleasure marina.
I took the opportunity to try out my new camera and had lots of fun 'zooming' around!
I have to say the zoom is pretty amazing! In the middle of this picture on the horizon there is an island - Steep Holm.
Here is Steep Holm taken from the same spot on the harbour wall with my zoom

Good to join in sewing with everyone again yesterday. Many thanks to Wendy for hosting once again.
Not a very exciting photograph. I am late to the party with my Spring Mystery Pouch by Nordic Crafter and Stitching Notes! But as you can see I am on the last lap. I spent my evening adding the first side of the zip to this pouch, herringboning the loose edge and then starting to add side two.

It's been a showery wet week here but Friday was dry and sunny and so we headed out for the day. We drove along the north Somerset coast to Porlock a pretty little village on Exmoor. Lots of small shops to look around and the home of Miles Tea and Coffee so Philip was able to stock up on his favourite teas.
The church of St Dubricius, dating from the 13th century, was unusual and interesting to look around.
This little stairway took you to the entrance to the Chapel of the High Cross.
These stairs were a little more tricky!
But fortunately the chapel was not far away
This is the 15th century monument to John and Elizabeth Harrington. He fought with Henry Vth in France and sadly died there.
We enjoyed coffee accompanied by scones with clotted cream and wortleberry jam in the Wortleberry Tea Rooms before moving on into Exmoor. Our next stop was Robbers Bridge - narrow and approached at an angle from both directions! - and I loved the moss covered trees nearby.
Exmoor was looking beautiful with all the autumn colour.
After our day out all I felt like doing in the evening was watching TV with some mindless knitting. I finished this sock up to the toe - not sure yet which colour to knit the toe, it will depend on how much wool is left. And made a start on the next sock. Most of that rib though was done this morning while watching England beat Sri Lanka in the T20 cricket - sorry Australia!😊
Many thanks Cheryll for hosting our FNwFs - pop over here to see who else took part.
