A Tale of Sausages and Cider…

Sometimes a weekend will come along that will stand out in memory for a long time to come. This weekend just gone by was exactly that. (Granted some of it is a little fuzzy – more on that later)
When an invite popped up on my facebook to a ‘Sausage and Cider Festival‘ I didn’t even check the date in case I was busy – instant ‘I’m in!’  The Clovelly Bay Inn was holding this amazing event!

There were – 4 types of mash, beans or green beans, 3 types of gravy and SEVEN TYPES OF SAUSAGE!!! Never mind the extensive selection of over 21 ciders!

What can I say – I was more than slightly tiddled after a few ciders, and then spent the weekend craving more sausages! I’m off to find the local butcher who supplied the sausages – Moostone Farm in Wembury to order a box of meat from them! Can life get any better than a box of meat turning up on your door – no, I thought not!

Big thanks to Terri, Martyn, Dean, Paula, Tom, Tracey and Richard for making the day so ‘eventful’ and just brilliant!
