Historic Town of Dunster Somerset

Dunster, near to the Somerset coastline at Minehead is a popular town with visitors. The ancient castle on the hill overlooking the town is its most prominent feature of course and the above photograph was taken from the ramparts. The attractive main street, at the top of which is the old yarn market, is lined with attractive shops and cafes. Even if you have never visited Dunster it will still seem familiar to you as a well used film location – check out Agatha Christie’s Poirot for instance.

Stormy clouds over Weston Bay and Brean Down Somerset

A stormy sky on a blustery day for a beach walk. The long beach at Weston leads down to Uphill and views over to Brean Down. To get to Brean Down you cannot get over the muddy estuary but have to walk a further seven miles which is a pity. It is well worth makingContinue reading “Stormy clouds over Weston Bay and Brean Down Somerset”

Lavender Fields at their best in a Provencal Summer

FREE BOOK TODAY- In search of Hemingway and Midnight in Paris

Writing about Paris throws up too many ideas and most of them are very personal and I wonder does anyone want to read such personal memoirs. Which brings me to Hemingway and the Woody Allen film ‘Midnight in Paris’ which is basically a Paris travel advertisement ( and no less enjoyable for that) based on Hemingway’s book ‘A Moveable Feast’. We watched the film again for about the fiftieth time over Christmas. Hemingway’s book is a memoir of his time in Paris in the 1920’s with his first wife Hadley and their young son.
