The Red Barn

The Red Barn in Woolacombe is well known in North Devon as it is just a few feet from this beach.
My favourite place in the world, not that I've been far 

My very very good friend Sue came to stay in Woolacombe with her husband Michael last month and it was great to catch go and have lunch at The Red Barn.
We had a lovely coffee, well kind of. I was late as I couldn't park as near as I hoped. Then I tried to pay with my new Ringo app. Well it wouldn't work and as I walked down to meet Sue, I still couldn't attract the satellite's attention and it wouldn't log it. I kept trying when I got there but still no joy, so I apologised to Sue and Michael and shamefacedly walked all the way back to the car to pay. Apart from being rude to Sue and Michael the walk wasn't a hardship as I had this view.
The cloud was rolling in and out under a lovely blue sky.
So I got back to the car and the app still wouldn't log the parking so I went over to the machine to pay my money and the machine wouldn't take it either.
It was free, of course, it would have helped being a tad more observant of the notices 
I have scrapped the photo I took on the way back. How we managed to forget to take one of us I don't know, we are a disgrace to Scrapbooking.
I have used Michelle's great sketch which you can find here.
It is also fitting the criteria for the UKS weekly challenge from Maggie here.
Thanks for coming by.
