A Gypsy Weekend

And a great party was enjoyed by all.

We were remarkably lucky with the weather and dodged between various thunderous rain clouds. We had the campsite to ourselves and so with true EMATG organisation, the plots were allotted with aforethought for the Saturday night partying. Friday night was food and drink and plotting for the weekend…

On Sat, one intrepid group of cyclist set out to work their miracle of navigating between the clouds to stay completely dry for the day. They also covered a few miles and a few sights. Any pictures that group?… 😉 A more sedate group of us wandered down the lane into the village to explore the motor museum and a few sights.

And then it was the Saturday night party! 🙂 … I’m still not sure about the retro music… Ouch! The food and drink were good 🙂

For Sunday, we had multiple groups for cycling and/or exploring. Sarah and myself wandered back via the nearby National Trust estate and a lookout tower folly.

All a good fun weekend as ever.

And here’s a few pictures:

Cheers,
Martin

    A model village in Gloucestershire, thought to be one of the oldest in England, has been Grade II listed.

    Work on the Bourton-on-the-Water attraction began in 1936. It took local builders five years to complete and is an exact replica of the village.

    English Heritage said with such excellent craftsmanship, the “charming creation” deserved its recognition.

    “It’s great. It shows that we’re a unique site, there’s nothing else like us,” said owner Julian Atherton. …
