Out and about in Taunton

The cutest little row of shops down an 18th century side alley. I love everything about that house, but in particular the balcony over the portico. I've always fancied a balcony for breakfasting on. Just like we did on our trip to Sweden.
We also went to the new museum. They've done it beautifully. It tells the story of Somerset from the beginning of time. I particularly loved some of the films they have done, plus the Low Ham mosaic with the screen behind it showing a Roman lady fading in and out like a ghost as she goes about her daily business. It really brings the floor to life. 

And here's the thing. I know somebody who knows somebody who knows somebody who was in some way involved in its discovery or getting it out of the ground. Fame at last.
