Exmouth today


By cmsue


Steragram (sue) posted recently that her and her husband David were coming to Exmouth for a few days. She had asked if there were any GOY members near, we are 17 or so miles away so a meeting was planned today.We all met up at a cafe on Exmouth sea front, then in for a natter and a cuppa.During the conversation we talked about how lovely the Connaught gardens in Sidmouth were, so a quick trip there was decided.We parked the car on the seafront and walked along to the steep steps that lead into the gardens.

This certainly made me and certainly Bob puff but it was worth it.

Here are a few pictures from around the garden.

Then into a very pleasant cafe inside the gardens,where we all enjoyed a nice lunch and a cuppa (again)

And then into the hothouse .

And this a presie from Sue and David. Thank you for this and a pleasant day. .

I have been to that cafe ~ its not too far from Budleigh ~ where my mum lives!
I hadn't seen all of the gardens though! Glad you all had a good time.

Lovely blog. Just shows what a good site Goy is.
I would like to meet up with Lincs Lass at Stamford when the weather is better. (Hint !)

I'm pleased you all enjoyed the day.
Those steps would have made me puff too I think lol :D
And those cacti ! How wonderful it must have been to see those ...
Nice views of the beach too Sue ... and that lovely Fuchsia :o)

Well Sue, you beat me to it - I will post a few more photos in a day or two, as we only got back yesterday. Thanks for a lovely day out. Hywel, we both thought about you, and all the cactus pics were for you.
