The forecast for today for South West England was wet, wet, wet again! However, we decided to ignore that and headed south for Bicton Botanical Gardens, in that there would be somewhere to shelter if it did rain. Well - it did, initially and we had a ride on the train around the gardens. Following that we headed off for the restaurant for a sandwich and whilst having lunch the clouds parted, the sun came through and the temperature rose!! Wonderful stuff!
There's many different areas to the gardens (it's also a horticultural college) and we walked for some distance. The gardens also have their own church!
This is a "car transportable buggy" and it is!
After a great day out we headed off home via the "pretty" route. This involved several flooded areas and we discovered, on our arrival at home, that we'd had torrential rain all day - but WE hadn't!
