To Clevedon for a ginger cupcake 37

Methinks it is the first day of winter today!  With a stiff breeze coming from the NW and a temperature of 8/9 degrees, it was distinctly chilly out there today.  The forecasted light rain stayed away and there was quite a lot of sun shining .  Certainly a good decision to put another layer on and get the thicker gloves out.  Contacted my daughter in Clevedon this morning to find out what she was up to today and was told that she had made some ginger cup cakes.  No brainer then, off to visit the offspring.

Water Trough

The ginger cakes ( x 2 ) and a cup of tea really hit the spot after a cold ride over there.  Caught up with the gossip and headed back to Weston.  Struggling to find anything of interest until just after starting back spotted this old Victorian water trough over looking the pier.  It was built in 1883 by the Rev. Neuman in memory of his wife and provided a drink for horses dogs and people.  A stunning location he chose with Wales in the distance, the English Channel and the pier.  Oh yes, and the blue sky.  It wasn't too bad a ride home as the wind was helping for much of the way.

Covered 37 miles today ending a good week on 140 miles.
