A Very British Day in Lyme Regis

I visited Lyme Regis yesterday which had a particularly British feeling to it as the Queen was celebrating her diamond jubilee. Here's the photographs (click on them for larger)...

There was a tea party going on at Marine Parade

With lots of cakes

Next to that was a best scone competition the 'Great Scone-Off'

The Judging...

 A tough job, but someone had to do it!

The winner is announced, it was Mulberry Manor

Then some Chelsea Pensioners turn up and get in on the scone action!

Those winning scones

After all the scone excitement I went for a stroll around the Cobb and took a couple of net shots

A great view from the Cobb back to Lyme Regis town

Part of the Jubilee celebrations was the lighting of the beacon and lots of boats took to sea to take part

and people took positions to watch the boats

but it was all too much for some people

On the way back to Exeter I saw the Queen and Prince Phillip in field!
