Relax and enjoy

DSC02744

When I wake up it is late, around 11:30. Everyone has had breakfast. Some people have gone. I get asked if I was kept awake by the noise when they all came back to the tents around the camping area and had the stereo on. Nope – I slept all through the shenanigans.

And get washed and changed and we start to decamp.

DSC02747

The weather is so good, so very very good. What shall we do for the rest of the day.

DSC02748

As it happens the Chadkirk Festival is on. And so we head that way. We are directed into a car park.

DSC02749

And then head for brief walk.

DSC02753

The last time we were here together Les was also here.

But no something has changed

They have built a bridge across the river and so you can now go walking much much further. And whilst that idea didn’t really appeal to me.

DSC02761

Alan and Zoe were over the moon by the idea!

DSC02765

We head back on ourselves to where the festival was actually taking place.

DSC02764

An on our way admired some wood carving that had been done.

DSC02770

Inparticular one of a wood pecker.

DSC02772

Whooo touchy touchy.

Whilst for some reason Alan didn’t want his photo taken with Nack.

DSC02774

We walked into the festival via the wonderful gardens they had growing

DSC02779

Enjoyed the various birds they had on display.

The enlightening statues

DSC02794

And things from out of this world.

DSC02798

Including the bee’s. Did you know they are not of this planet but where brought here by someone or something. Hence when the bees go. so does life as we know it.

DSC02800

And with this set in mind the band start playing

DSC02805

And we listen

DSC02807

Then we shop and eat, and drink some tea, before heading the green where there are displays happening.

It is so warm and cosy and me and Zoe settle down somewhere.

chadkirkDSC03349

Can you spot us? We are on the front row.

DSC02808

As the festival draws to an end we leave and head back to Alan's favourite place.

DSC02819

The place where the road to life ends for him.

DSC02810

But for the plants and flowers and vegatbles

DSC02811

this is where the Bee’s are happiest.

DSC02820

Zoe shows me some wood.

DSC02818

The bee’s though, the bee’s we must look after the bee’s.

DSC02813

And with that Zoe begins to think I’ve gone mad and takes me back to her home.

IMG_20140727_185406_362

So Nack, have I got a game for you. And you are going to enjoy this. Mancala a game so simple

IMG_20140727_185346_494

That its great and addictive.

IMG_20140727_175600_468

Oh course I “let” Zoe win as many times as I can.

DSC02825

That way she might come me some tea. Well Alan did actually! We just played games in the delight of the back garden

DSC02822

Underneath that mad mad mad monkey tree.
