Andrea Kay, our hostess, is a proponent of natural foods and good cooking. She has what is called a Rayburn cooker, apparently a slow-cooker. (Andrea gets up at 6 a.m. to begin making breakfast to serve to us at 8 a.m.) She buys local, and thus fresher, produce for her meals. She believes a meal should be a leisurely event, not just a quick bite.
After breakfast, we pack up and leave the Bay Rose House. We stop in "downtown" Cheddar so I can mail my postcards to the USA.
The village of Cheddar has been famous for Cheddar Cheese for over a thousand years. We had some real Cheddar Cheese on last night's Lasagna and it was great!
We stop to take photos of Cheddar Gorge. Scotty obligingly climbs up the hillside so we can photograph him pretending to be a mountain goat.
Priddy is the next stop. We remember the "New Inn" (dated about 1300 A.D.) there. When we reach Priddy, it's obvious that the inn has been replaced. Things change. Maybe the New Inn burned.
We look at some "barrows" (ancient burial mounds) on the way to Priddy.
