    ... packed with people, huge plates of amazing food being delivered to tables by young friendly staff. No chance of a seat so I got my coffee and cake to go. By the time i had finished it the rain had eased. So I drove to one of the places where the mud pools were. Bus load after bus load of tourists were streaming in so I decided to head instead to the Redwood Forest for a walk. I casually glanced at the boards which showed the various walks and because someone had mentioned Blue ...

    ... fruit,veg, flowers and vegetation. So the market was full of different kinds of plants Monty Don would be in his element here !! Lol And of course the second hand ... Oops .... Vintage stalls selling stuff I recognise from home but what excites me the most Is the craft stalls.
