Festivals and more …

I had friends up for a weeks holiday this month and we had a great time. the last time they were over was for  Glasto –The Glastonbury Festival in June. I realised when I came to the blog today that I did not write anything in June…I think it was because I was recovering from that weekend of music, food and drink – especially the drink  I think.  Looking at the pictures we took and reminising over it brought back what a great weekend it was. Although we live near(ish) we camped with friends over the weekend and learnt a lot.  I never knew how much people left behind, unbeliveable; tents, tables, all sorts of bags and baggage. I was amazed at the waste! Never did find out what happened to it – all dumped or sold on for charity?? Anyone know, I would be so interested to find out.

Somerset has something on nearly every weekend and especially in summer, its great! Using the library, Google and locals I found some amazing places to visit. One we visited when friends where here, was Weston-Super-Mare. Lovely town, which hosts a sand festival every year from April to the end of September. This year the theme was Hollywood and there was some amazing sculptures.  As a Jonny Depp fan the one below was my favourite.If you are in the area well worth a visit. We stayed at a lovely B&B there are so many to choose from and ours was a short walk from the beach and town, suited us perfectly.
