I went over to Charlestown Regatta in the evening with the intention of trying to take photos of Ben (from this post) dancing. It turned out that I knew a few of the girls who were dancing with him from my netball coaching days. So I had plenty of bodies to photograph. It was a great learning kerb, low light and very fast moving dancers, I was exhausted just watching them, even the little ones were fantastic. So here are a couple from the event.
This is Chelsea and I have to say she has a lovely voice and did a great job of singing in between dances.
The senior group (Ben on the left, only boy, surprise surprise!! )
We headed off to Bristol to the Balloon Fiesta, on route we passed these
not what you normally expect to see on the A30!!
We had a walk around the balloon site which turned out to be just one big fun fair, which was a bit disappointing to be honest. So we then walked into Clifton and met up with Bernadette and her boyfriend and had some lunch which was lovely. These Gromit models are dotted around the place in Bristol, there are 80 altogether and at some point they will be auctioned off for charity. Apparently the Japanese are showing a lot of interest in them at the moment!! Bernadette was not impressed that I took a photo. Maps have been produced and people are having days out going in search of finding them all!!! Hmm, must admit they are cute and all decorated differently. Abit of fun.
A day indoors for me as the walking from thurs evening and Friday did not go down well with my leg. So spent the day editing photos. So here are two from the night glow at the Balloon fiesta. It was packed and apparently Thurs was the quiet night lol.
A spot of gardening today. Can't remember if I told you that Mick finally gave in and built me a raised bed in the garden so I could grow some veg. Well I got a little carried away with what I put in. I honestly did not expect everything to take - it doesn't normally!! Anyway I bought a packet of baby sweetcorn and they have sort of grown and have taken over to say the least!! There are sweet peas behind the sweetcorn! Think I shall give them a miss next year. lol
