    A Sick Day

    A travel blog entry by ddmac54 on Sep 12, 2015

    Sorry family and friends, today is a sick day. I started feeling worse as the day progressed. My throat became sore and a little constricted. I had a tough night and got up in the middle of the night to take more aspirins and gargle with salt water. Unfortunately, I took it into the downstairs bathroom, threw back my head and saw two daddy-long-leg spiders on the ceiling. I almost swallowed the salty water! Gross.

    Whiny and miserable I looked outside and ...

    ... pepper, mushrooms and some really nice pork chops and steak. I also got some nice local cheeses and Michael got some honey for his oatmeal that came from a hive behind the store!

    We took a few photos of the wildness of the ocean today on the way home. I also wanted to get out of the car to take photos of our perilous driveway at the cottage. When I started walking up the driveway to get the shots I noticed our front door was open and people ...

    ... shots of the surfers and then stopped in one of our locals, The Thatch, for refreshment. The local beer is called Tribute and Michael seems to like it. I had an Earl Grey tea. We had a nice surprise when we walked home in the form of a note pushed under the door from the property manager offering to come in and clean the cottage and wash the bedding on Friday. Yes, please!!

    As well as the Devon Cream Tea, one of the things on my To Do list here is ...

    ... We had eaten our sandwiches down by the harbour so we decided on a Devon Cream Tea since it was afternoon, warm and we were in need of a break. I know we weren't in Devon and were now in Cornwall, but what the heck. I took some photos of it.

    One of the things I haven't mentioned is the English drivers' horrible habit of parking on the street. I mean both sides of the street, actually blocking a lane. ...

    ... cat on the road. That was it for me. Sights like that make me cry so Michael and the GPS Lady were on their own.

    Ilfracombe is a gorgeous seaside town, but extremely steep so there was lots of climbing involved. The problem is that Michael is still suffering the last of his cold and I'm afraid I have now started to feel a cold coming on. We did get a few shots of the town and I picked up a bit of its history. The church up on the rock was built in 1321 and was first ...
