What a brilliant day we had yesterday. After calling in at the opticians to order new lenses for my glasses & doing the weekly shop at Tesco, we drove to Yarmouth to the Old Gaffers Festival. We'd never been before. The weather was hot & sunny & the drive through the countryside was brilliant. You forget just how beautiful the Isle of Wight is until you get off the beaten track. We saw a life size Mr Fox sat on a chair at the end of someone's drive, a Trap being pulled by a couple of Shire horses and signs that said 'scarecrows' which I'm sorry to say, we didn't follow.
We parked in a 'park & ride' field just outside Yarmouth & caught an old open top bus into the town.
Last but not least Andrew became a great Uncle for the first time yesterday! Lorna & Craig had a little boy or should I say not so little at 9lbs 1oz!! They are all doing well (being updated via facebook) but they haven't named him yet ... watch this space :O)
