Devon County Show ,England
The Devon County Show was ended on the 20th of May in Westpoint,Exeter.It is an expo about the agriculture in the county,a showcase for artisan producers,entertainment and good local food a event that is certainly not to be missed by locals.Straight after finishing work I made my way there.I was a bit sceptical about the traffic but the road was clear so I would definitely recommend going in the afternoon.Arriving there,I went straight to the strawberry and creams stand which was very lush indeed.It put me in a great mood..But guess what,it started pouring down with rain and everything got muddy.If you decide to come to the Devon County Show make sure you bring your wellies,don’t be fool like me.Converse trainers stuck in the mud.
Bit further the entertainment car truck show started and this bad ass truck destroyed these other cars,I have never seen anything like it before.Walked through the food festival part where the scent of burgers,sausages and fried onions were calling me.There was so much food that I didn’t know what to choose.Finally went to the roast hog with apple sauce,I’m not a huge fan of pork meat but I had to try and I have to say it was really nice.Made my way to the Pimm’s marquis where I stayed for about 20 min a break,well deserved.Hey no judgements here,love Pimm’s.
Around 4pm the prize winning cattle,sheep and pigs are led to the main ring by their owners.I actually felt bad at this moment,felt guilty to see these animals winning their prizes while everyone around was eating their meat.
On the other side I find a great discovery at the Common Loaf Bakeryhttp://www.commonloaf.com bought their nice homemade bread.Tried some great local cider and some nice cheese.I carried on my way to do some more shopping,brought back a duvet made of real sheets wool and some wellies to be prepared for future adventures.It is time for me to leave and get back to my normal life.All of this to say,I had a blast,great show to enjoy on your own or with family.Make sure you book your week end off for the Devon county show 2018
