After Birmingham

We got back to my Aunts house early evening on the Friday and we were able to sit and relax and tell her all about the show and the quilts we had seen, I showed her photos on the camera and she was very interested.
The following day was glorious, we had had rain all day the previous day in Birmingham, not that it worried us being inside, bunt it was good to see the sunshine again.  Aunty had asked for our help on small jobs that needed doing and we were only to happy to oblige, so off we went to St Ive's , we had a lovely visit it really is a lovely town and we walked from one end to the other!

 We had visited the Ferry Boat Inn in Holywell prior to going to Birmingham and this is Cathy and I standing in the pub with the beam just above our heads.

 The great British Breakfast!!

 I couldn't resist taking this. I used to drive around London, England in  the exact same Land Rover, it was my favourite vehicle. It 's an ex Army Series III, the petrol tanks were located unde the drivers seat, and under the passenger seat, when one tank was empty you just flipped a switch and the other tank would then be used. She was a joy to drive, hot in Summer which is why you took the canvas hood off, and cold in Winter, I can remember getting wet feet as the rain would drip in  through the window area. As for heating, it didn't have much! However, I loved driving it but was then upgraded to a Range Rover!

Views of St Ive's, the weather was extremely hot, the following week saw the temperatures drop quite considerably although it was still warm. We then went to the Garden Centre in Brampton and had lunch and then back home to do some planting and other jobs. We left after lunch on Sunday and then headed back to London where we were staying with friends. But that's another story!
