An Outing To Babbacombe Model Village - a Memory of Babbacombe.

My wife Elizabeth and I went to Babbacombe on 1st April to give our granddaughter Anna a treat on her second birthday. We spent almost the whole day in Babbacombe Model Village which is close to the top of the cliff railway in this photo.

She loved to walk and run along the narrow paths between the model houses. She enjoyed gazing at the koi carp in the pond and kept going back to look at them. We took lots of photographs as we really enjoyed a happy day's outing.

There is a terrace at the top of the slope where we ate our picnic and looked down over the entire village. Its a beautiful place for young children to enjoy - and their grandparents too!
