|Pretty ain't it.|
Apart from the TV, and the nice weather which was out of my hands, our resort wasn't bad. It had a clubhouse / pub / reception area, that hosted an arcade, a few slots as well as a stage area which had some pretty young ladies dancing with a giant rabbit whenever we popped in for dinner.
|Not a great shot.|
Our arcade was quite nice actually, nothing for me ironically, but there were a few interesting cabs to look at, including a big rocketship ride with a built in screen, and a few old Sega cabs, apart for an obligatory House of the Dead included a Dinosaur King and a Love and Berry in shin high cabinets. Kicking myself that it was always too busy to grab a photo of these. Also it seems that Archer Maclean's Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker is now a quiz game. Didn't actually get to play this either but it was part of a quiz terminal along with a few other pub staples and that.
Ilfracombe is nice, with a few good gardens and an impressive Strawberry Tree in the car park and a strange theatre with its reactor like acoustic domes. They had a good line up of shops including an independent record shop and a few general store type things, the harbour had a sculpture of a vivisected pregnant woman by Damien Hirst, but the natural landscape with much more stunning (see top picture). If you are into geology then there is some pretty cool looking rock strata out there which makes for excellent photos. Also a nice local museum, we like a nice museum.
Barnstaple, is the archetypal big town, nicely laid out and can recommend the Pannier Center, a covered market in the heart of town for antique stuff (wednesdays) and general market stuff (every other day). Plenty of charity shops and free disabled parking made me quite impressed with it.
Lynton and Lynmouth.
Little town / village further along the coast with a working funicular railway that transports you up and down the cliff edge between the two towns. Lots of poky shops and steep walks down to places here, so not really those who can't walk far. Also dogs, loads and loads of dogs, dogs in shops, dogs on the street and dogs on the cliff railway, if you like dogs then there are plenty here for you.
|Where's my lead go?|
That is all.
|They sound cool but are probably a rock band.|
