Although the weather wasn't very good we headed south this time from Tiverton.

Our first stop was in the small town of Honiton where we visited the small local museum. Honiton is famous for lace. Honiton lace is a very fine hand bobbin lace. It was a cottage industry in the 17th century with the majority of lace being made in the homes of the workers, who were often the wives of poorly paid labourers and fishermen. Queen Victoria had her wedding dress made of Honiton lace. As Heather can make bobbin lace (not very well) she found the museum very interesting with many fine pieces of lace on display.

It was still raining but we continued to Sidmouth. This small quaint seaside town is on the Jurassic coast. If the weather had been better we would have walked part of the coastal path but instead we walked along the front and explored the town and the little garden.

After our walk we headed further along the coast to Exmouth and said hello to Tony's brother Donald and sister-in-law Wendy.
