Church Outing

We attempt to have a church activity each month. It is usually inside during the winter and if we can get a sunny day, we do try and get outside. This past Thursday we went to Cotehele which is a Tudor house that has been maintained in the same family for several hundreds of years. One of the men who attends our services made his living as an antiques dealer and offered to give us a tour of the house and explain all of the furniture and artifacts. It was quite amazing to hear what all the things were. Little items that we would see as just decoration were actually things that were essential to life in the 1600's. We all enjoyed a picnic in the garden and then walked the grounds. The Harveys from Exeter came over for the day and it was agreed we need to have another day out in May.

Kent had a few good conversations with a few that came and it was good to spend time with the people in a relaxed atmosphere.
