Not exactly a replacement for Doris, but they do have ice cream. 👍
Trying to maximise our time today, we decided to combine going for a walk, with having a meal and also seeing something of the place around us… tick, tick and tick. 👍
As shown above, there’s a lovely looking beach and a pier with what looks like a lifeboat launch at the end. 🤔
Jánine even managed to find some HUGE hag stones, the size of a watermelon!…which thankfully, I managed to persuade her not to bring home with us.
This was a literal drive by photo Jánine managed to snag as we drove from Glastonbury to Norfolk.
It wasn’t that we were attempting to find the place, or that we even intended to stop there, but when the opportunity arose to grab a quick photo for the blog… we didn’t disappoint. 🤣
I loved this welcome to one of the shops! 😃
Simply ring the bell for the assistant to come to the door, squirt some sanitizer into your hand and let you in if there weren’t too many people inside already.
No time away in Doris exploring would be complete, without some of the local graffiti admire.
Wandering around Glastonbury, you start to realise there are crystals everywhere!… and I mean everywhere.
You notice crystals in statues, for sale in practically every shop you go in and even in the walls of houses as you walk up the street, where they’ve obviously been embedded into the brickwork and mortar by the builders.
Make a wish, or think of something you’re grateful for, write it down, tie a ribbon on it, then tie it to the tree with all the others for it to come true. 🌟
What a nice little dragon he was! 😃 …I say little, he was probably 6 feet tall!
While on our way to the Tor, we happened upon a small spring at the side of the road which looked amazing.
After chatting with one of the guys there, we found there was a small temple inside where people go to meditate and pray.
Unfortunately, they were just closing and they said they’re only open at the weekends now due to Covid restrictions and needing four volunteers to run it, but after some small talk from Jánine, they let us in for 5 minutes to have a quick look around. 👍
I believe it’s a small reservoir / spring built into the side of the hill, which has water flow into it.
Once inside, you can see there are small altars at each end and in the middle a kind of 3 layer waterfall type that’s flowing into what looks a little like a hot tub in the middle.
The acoustics in there were amazing too, you could hear the chanting reverberating all around you which transported you to another place.
This was the view from Doris each morning as we left to go into town, looking up at one of the famous landmarks of Glastonbury for three days, while in the magical kingdom… not bad at all. 👍
