Fous de Bassin

Some advertising about a performance on water, complete with fire caught my eye and decided it was worth checking out!

I dragged my soon to be neighbour Dan along... It ended up being quite a random show but some of it was spectacular!

The races at Ascot is often on of the 'to do' list of antipodeans in the UK. I decided to check out what the fuss was about in June

The Queen! Always a bonus

Some of the Queen's entourage I'm guessing, but definitely lower in the ranks - they only get brown horses!

The ever cute Alpie, with the most important part of the day - champagne!

Miss Ruth

Some racing...

Neela and me!

Lake District

Kendal was our stop in the Lake District. We didn't have great walking shoes so gave the surrounding peaks a miss and headed to the water instead.

Derwent Water

Luciane & Stella :o)

View from the boat

It's easy to smile when the sun's shining!

The shore of Derwent Water, complete with an Inukshuk!

A fern!

But alas, not a silver fern :(

The cutest couple, still holding hands after what I assume is many years together :)

Road Trippers with our trusty steed! Kindly lent to us by my sis and bro-in-law :-D

Luciane and Stella, some Brazilian friends of mine came to visit in June and I managed to take a couple of days off to head up to Stratford-Upon-Avon and the Peak District. Here are some pics from Shakespeare's hometown.

Streetscape, Stratford style!
