What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

Today Nina and I did the most expensive load of laundry ever (well, probably not, but it felt that way). It turns out that when the hotel website said that they had laundry, that means that they will do your laundry for you, but the prices! They wanted over 5 pounds to wash a pair of pants! That's more than I paid for most of my pants. Anyway, I decided to try to find a laundromat. Not so easy here, so while we set out at 9 am to wash our laundry, we didn't actually cross to door of the laundry until noon. With two taxi rides included, one load cost about 25$, and I didn't even dry it! But it was fine, we saw stuff we wouldn't have on foot, and Nina got to ride in two taxis IN HER STROLLER. It was strange but convenient.

For the afternoon, we decided to go to Cheddar. They have a big gorge with caves there, and of course, the CHEESE. We waited at the bus station for two buses that never came, and after conversing with two locals about the time frame, I decided that if we waited longer and took the bus we would just have to turn around when we got there. So we headed over to a construction site and watched diggers for a while and watched some swans.

We also hit a farmer's market and got a container of beautiful strawberries from a lovely lady and ate them all.

To top it off, we ate at the pub that is supposed to be the model for the Admiral Benbow in Treasure Island. In keeping with the tourist theme, I had Yorkshire Pudding with sausage and mash. It was pretty good.
