The clouds over my house on Friday evening, we had a thunderstorm, it didn't last long, we have actually seen and heard better ones, but this one was directly over our house at one point.
Saturday morning, we awoke after the storm to a sunny morning, but with black clouds in the distance. Right to where we were going! We went the the West Somerset Steam Fayre at Norton Fitzwarren.
We drove to Bishop Lydyeard Station and had a free train ride to the Norton Fitzwarren siding for the steam fayre.
This train was actually going to Minehead!
We saw tiny steam
Mini traction engines
Proper size traction engines, think my favourite of all the 'steam'. Think I prefer these to engines - don't know why.........
The 'road gang' display
They had an armoured vehicle display too including this famous ambulance......
This ambulance appeared in the film Ice Cold in Alex with John Mills and Sylvia Symms
We saw the Starlight Pullman Car. The name because it has windows along the top of the roof.
There was a craft tent too. But I was actually very disappointed. Forty percent of the stalls were hand made cards, and forty percent were jewellery, made from glass beads, bracelets and necklaces. The other twenty percent were other things like the barge painter, and the giant cookie counter.
Whilst we were there, there was a very heavy downpour where everyone scurried to the nearest tent, we ended up in the model boat tent!
Now my flowers
Before the rain
and after the rain!
