The 'eating porridge in the rain' tradition was not to be missed. With enough maple syrup on top anything tastes ok, even in rain.
Of course, the last day we had pouring rain so the kids were waiting in the car and this is what happens when they find a some colouring pens, painting eachother like indians. Laughing their heads off. I tried wiping them off as good as i could but this is more or less what they looked like when we went, unplanned, to The River Cottage restaurant in Axminster, for an impromptu lunch. We just thought we were popping in for coffeee but as we were there we all felt rather peckish. In our muddy boots and fleeces we fitted right in. And after eating our porridge that same morning in rain this felt like such a treat.
