Okay, in yesterdays blog I said I wasn’t going to do a post for my rest day but thought I had better update the beer statistics and put a couple of photos of Taunton.
My first task of the day was laundry, so I found a laundromat about a km away from the B&B and went there to do my washing. While there I started googling outdoor stores to get a new rain jacket only to find Tauton Leisure outdoor store was 30 metres down the road from the laundromat. Store was great and I purchased anew rain jacket and gloves while washing was getting done.
I was in a bit of a rush as I needed to get laundry/shopping done, drop it off to B&B and then find a pub to watch Liverpool vs Stoke City at 12:30. I found a sports pub by 12:35 and spent a couple hours resting watching football.
The remainder of the day was resting and planning route for next few days. Below are some random images from Taunon
St Marys Church – A very old church with a very modern front door
Building from 1578 housing a coffee shop
While walking through villages in the last few days I have seen quite a few houses with Meerkat statues in the windows. This collection in a Taunton front window is pretty special and you can only just see the ones at the front and there were many more behind.
