Holiday Diary - Day 44

Today we drove up to Minehead to catch a steam train to Bishops Lydeard on the West Somerset line. Originally we were going to drive to Bishops Lydeard but we got moving a little later than we needed so we drive to the other end of the line and caught the train there instead.

Here are some of the photos from today's little jaunt.

The engine that pulled us along being unhitched so it could be
 moved to the other end

Low tide near Washford

The water is a long way out

A church we saw on the way
There were a couple of stations I didn't get shots of on the way out but I got them on the way back, which is why they are out of order.

Tomorrow we drive down to Plymouth where we will be based for the next 4 days. We hope to see the inside of Plymouth Congress Hall tomorrow evening since we don't expect to get down there in time for the morning service.
