Perry's Cider - Dowlish Wake

Paid a visit to Perry's Cider in Dowlish Wake today
to buy some Local Cider
Great collection of cider flagons in the Museum
and a great selection of old tools
I wasn't going to stand around too long people would have thought
I was one of the exhibits.

Is that the one we drove past, or a different one?

I hope to drive up to Wells this week to buy some local Norfolk cider for the holidays.

Any news, vis-a-vis the bloggers get together?

Paul: this comment comes from my friend Chris Bromfield, a Somerset boy who married a woman here on Cape Cod and now lives and works here. He's a thatcher by trade and did some work on Johnny Leach's house a few years back. He apparently still speaks whatever it is you folks speak there in Somerset, because I don't completely understand him all the time. Here's what he wrote when I sent the link to your Dowlish Wake item: "Hay Hollis, tell yer blogger mate that my Aunt Hillary owns a pub a few miles away from Dowlish Wake. It's Dinnington Docks. She's not there much , its run by a manager, but he might still be able to get a pint and a haircut on a Tuesday morning. Does your mate live in England?Dowlish cider is a bit sweet for me, I prefer Borough Hill screech me senn."

Hi Hollis,
we go to the Dinnington Docks quite a bit it's one of our favorite pubs, it's so old and quirky, you still can get your hair cut on a Tuesday. and the food is great.

Time to start planning for the show season.

Show Time is fast approaching it's that time of year when you have to think about how you want to present yourself to the world! ...
