First thing this morning I went Across the Pond! I took a stroll through the seaside village of Branscombe, Devon! I stopped for a spot of tea at the Sea Shanty Tearooms in Branscombe, and gazed at a 12th century Norman church while "pegging out the washing to dry." Before leaving, I popped into Ye Olde Six Bells– a former retreat for monks– ducking the low "timbered ceilings" for some hearty pub food!
My lovely, red-headed tour guide is Mary, a transplanted Brit who now resides in North Carolina. Her passion for British culture, as well as her magical musings and many creative pursuits, will have you pulling up a chair! She has the knack for translating the mundane into the "fun-dane!" Do pay her a visit!
