Another Combe Martin kind of day

First the "old" man blowing out his candles yesterday.
A special evening followed and we were treated to a ride in Christine's new mini.
We headed to the Kings Arms at Georgeham and the 'beer of the day"
The meal was fantastic and we finally found some clotted cream!
So now for a guessing game. What is this?
Today dawned misty and cooler so we decided on an easy day around the beautiful Combe Martin. We strolled down to the beach from Chrus and Howard's house on, at times, really wide footpaths.
The beach is very quaint.

Never ones to skimp on elegance, Chris and Howard took us to a converted public toilet for a cuppa. It wasn't as bad as it sounds.
And on the sign I spotted a grand English tradition, the knicker bocjer glory.
OMG were they wonderful with clotted cream included.  I had to photograph the Aussie t-shirts.
Christine took a fancy to my hat.
And we discovered a camel - can you see it?
On the way back we stopped at the Pack O Cards pub for the beer of the day.
He went back to Carlsberg... The girls enjoyed Somerset cloudy cider.
The river Umber runs at the bottom of the beer garden.
After a very pleasant time which included a delicious lunch we headed home to sit on chairs in the garden in the sun. Blessed by the weather yet again.
Oh and the pub has a story. It has four floors, 52 windows, one blank window (joker) and the library window has 13 panes of glass. Here's a bit about its original owner
I should also tell you a few more things about Combe Martin, Michael Parkinson came here for his honeymoon in 1959. They also have a very strange event each year in which they shoot the Earl of Rone 17 times. (I kid you not). More information in these links. Only in England.
