Rural Bank Holiday Show

Living where we do, on the furthest edge of the town, has its advantages. We get a town style bus service, but all the rural agricultural shows on the doorstep. Last Monday was the August Bank Holiday in the UK, and usually we traditionally have loads of agricultural shows in rural areas. So we trotted off to the local show in the afternoon, as we have done for a number of years now. Its a big meeting up of the family clan! Here's a taster of the atmosphere, and animals rule OK?

Schnauzer talk? Our adolescent puppy is on the right, the lazy one, is a younger chum of his!

Horsey talk?

The main arena - centre of attraction? My granddaughter.

Owl talk? Isn't he georgeous?

There was a Marquee with craft goods for sale, home made cakes, home made cards and jewellry a couple of stands selling baby quilted sundries. Could not take a photo in there to show you, but you can probably imagine. There were a number of animal charity stalls, farm suppliers, vehicle suppliers, vets, ice creams, food stalls, flower shows . A great day and the weather shone brightly, despite the weather forcasters threat of rain!

My eldest son was one of the sponsors this year, which was great, and he thoroughly enjoyed himself and so did the family, and he will definitely sponsor again next year.
