Clevedon for Coffee 42

Well tea really.  Rode over to Clevedon to meet up with daughter Jacqueline and her fiancee James.  Left Weston in the dry but had rain and a lot of surface water towards Clevedon. Note to self:- Get some mudguards!

Teatro Lounge

Well worth a visit if you are in Clevedon and fancy something other than an ordinary 'caff'. Met my daughter in here for a cuppa and caught up on the family chat. Had to chain the bike to one of the chairs outside, good job it was a dreary morning and they were not in demand at all.

Curzon Cinema

Just around the corner from the Teatro Lounge is the Curzon. This cinema, built in 1912, is one of the oldest community run cinemas in the world.  Its first showing, on the 20th April 1912, raised money for the survivors of the Titanic which sank 12 days earlier.  Now owned by Clevedon Community Centre for the Arts, it is a registered charity and gives daily performances as well as stage shows.


Took a little diversion in Clevedon to go the the sea front.  Rather than publish shots of the picturesque Victorian pier, I was more drawn to the becalmed dinghies out in the bay.  They were trying to make progress in a wind that would register 0 on the Beaufort scale.

Speed Trap?

Going back to Weston via the little village of Kingston Seymour, they had the annual scarecrow hunt.
I give the winner's medal to this geezer moderating the speed of traffic entering the village.

A bit wet in the middle of today's ride but covering 42 miles, it was the best performance of the year so far.
