On our first full day we all went to Ham Hill Country Park with fantastic views across the South Somerset North Dorset countryside. After a bit of a walk we found ourselves at a pub, would you believe it? In fact this became something of a trend.Walk, Beer, Beer, Walk. or the other way round.
Day 2 we went to the seaside: beach, picnic, walk, beer, walk.
Day 3 the men went to Cadbury Castle for a bit of Iron Age culture and you guessed it a beer while the ladies went shopping. We also saw a few birds; Raven, Nuthatch, Wheatear, Coal tit, Green Woodpecker, Blackcap and Willow/Chiffs.

Strange goings on, on Cadbury Castle
Strange goings on indeed, walking round the top of this former Hill top settlement we came upon a group of people involved in some sort of ritual. The leader spoke in Spanish and the ritual involved facing south and holding up feathers and later blowing bubbles. We left them to it, speculating on might they might do next and what it all meant.
