This year our May Bank Holiday Rally saw the full range of weather that could be thrown at us. Thursday and Friday were sunny and hot.
Whilst some members were heading to cooler climes in the Med we were basking in cloudless skies and high twenties temperatures. Saturday saw coudy skies after heavy early morning rain and some dizzle later which put a damper on the planned afternoon activity, Sunday more sun and Monday, well – overcast to pack up in and by the time I reached home it was pouring down and didn’t stop until early evening.
Heavy rain early Saturday morning woke me up
A quick look outside and a case of “Red sky in the morning Shepard’s warning”
Saturday afternoon was to be “afternoon tea and cake”
Not just any tea and cake. Celtic Manor, The Ritz, Raffles eat your hearts out.
Lyn said she had always wanted to do this, unfortunately the weather won again and the planned setting up tables outside and evry van would have its own cake stand with ckakes and scones, plate of delicate sandwiches, pot of tea and trifle ended up with us all sat in an awning. Even so it was brilliant. So brilliant that dinner went by the by (for me anyway)
Sunday and all change with the weather. Back to summer.
Visitations from grandchildren day today. Do I see some potential new members??
Sunday evening and off some of us went for a meal to the nearest hostelry “The Harewood End Inn”
As someone said:-
“Excellent food; excellent service and extremely pleasant atmosphere.”
Monday arrived with the makings of a typical Bank Holiday Monday. Oh well three good days out of five for a UK Bank Holiday not too bad.!!
Finally as we left the restaurant the quiz question in the next room was ” Where was St George buried” The answer is Lydda in Palestine where he was executed, now part of Israel.
