St Martins Church, Wareham

So yesterday we train’ed to Wareham. Warm, but pleasant in the shade/breeze. Not much changes there. People going about their daily shop. Nice community feel. 99% independent shops. The street planters were blossoming (“Wareham in Bloom on”).

Excellent Flat Whites at Terra Organics, and one of the best banana walnut cakes (vegan) I’ve had.

On the way back (after loading up with fruit and veg at the Quay Market), we had 10
mns to spare before the train back. And at last we visited St Martin’s Church which I have admired from the street so many times, and has always been locked.

The extra shows a sad plaque displayed on the church wall wit the fate of members of the Carruther’s family. Different times then.

Sunny day (again). We’ll be out early. Mr B is preparing a ‘peperonata’ with the our Wareham peppers.

Have a perfect Sunday x

Update: 1A to The Riverside Pub overlooking the Stour in Christchurch. Cider and a Sunday treat, a vegan blackcurrant mousse. Then walk to The Quomps (lovely park, by river) and listening to a choir at the bandstand.
