BABBACOMBE MODEL VILLAGE, (part 1)

Today this blog is all about the famous Babbacombe Model Village here in Devon. It was to be in two parts, now it may have to be three, as Blogger, in its wisdom wouldn't allow me to enter two small pictures alongside each other, then down in a row. That would have allowed me to put in 12 or 14 small pictures keeping the length minimal. When we arrived home from our visit I started to transfer these pictures I found, we (Sue) has taken 268 of them. Trying to trim these down to a single blog size as you can imagine was impossible. Anyway Format is now as my norm (but long I'm afraid). This Village is open virtually all year around and attracts thousands of visitors. We had never been to visit it before but I'm very glad we did. We recently passed it on the way to Torquay and noticed that from 13th it was going to be a winter display, a lot of it snow covered. Also for two weeks up until Christmas it also has Santa & his Grotto.
PLEASE do click on a picture to enlarge it and see the detail in the pictures, they are very lifelike.This first picture was taken looking over the garden from the kiddies ski slope area. It isn't obvious from this picture but this garden slopes gently away to the left for around 300 metres in length.
This one below is like a lot of these, very lifelike indeed.
Below Santa and Reindeer arriving in the village, but the kids still aren't in bed !!!.
This one below reminds me of looking down from maybe a small mountain. The miniature trees they use are really good.
Below, note the railway running through the Avenue of trees, not sure what "Stonehenge" has to do with it though.
This lovely little cull- d- sac (below) even has foot prints in the snow.
Below, This one shows a Communications and weather Satellite station.
The view below could so easily have been taken across the estate lake to the "Stately House".
We both love this lovely little Terrace (below).
This below could easily be kids enjoying sledding down the village slope.
So do you agree with us it was worth a visit and a blog?. I will do at least one more on this subject, one will be on the Toy Town section of the village, which wasn't quite so lifelike.
Comments Please, don't just lurk, COMMENT even if they are negative.
Joke of the Day.

NEW BOOTS.
An elderly couple, Margaret and Bert, moved to Texas. Bert always wanted a pair of authentic cowboy boots, so, seeing some on sale, he bought them and wore them home.
Walking proudly, he sauntered into the kitchen and said to his wife, 'Notice anything different about me?'
Margaret looked him over. 'Nope.'
Frustrated, Bert stormed off into the bathroom, undressed and walked back into the kitchen completely naked except for the boots.
Again he asked Margaret, a little louder this time, 'Notice anything different NOW?'
Margaret looked up and exclaimed, 'Bert, what's different? It's hanging down today, it was hanging down yesterday, it'll be hanging down again tomorrow!'
Furious, Bert yelled, 'AND DO YOU KNOW WHY IT'S HANGING DOWN, MARGARET?'
'Nope', she replied.
'IT'S HANGING DOWN, BECAUSE IT'S LOOKING AT MY NEW BOOTS!!!!'

Without changing her expression, Margaret replied, 'Shoulda bought a hat, Bert.
Shoulda bought a hat...'

These looked so real that I had to go back and re-read to be sure it was a model.
