Party Time Bexhill

Hi again folks,


As nigh time falls its time to go to the hall to be entertained, we had three groups at this event so lots of time to dance and have fun. 







As a thank you to the committee a collection was organised by the campers and a thank you card from all off us for there fantastic pull out all the stops effort after the fire at Selsey.


One of our star Carole who missed the proceedings as she was walking her dog Reggie.


The Headliners entertained us.


Saturday the family arrived to take us out for lunch and join us in the evening.


As a surprise to us we were presented with a card signed by the campers at the rally and a bottle which went down wonderfully.


 Third evening was the fantastic Dad Pack the highlight of the weekend.


Great entertainment and thanks to the committee for putting on a fantastic event after the fire at Selsey. Mike

Bexhill with the Sussex MCC

Hi folks,
last weekend we should have been going to Selsey Academy for the bank holiday weekend but as most of you know it suffered a fire and burnt down and we relocated to St Richards, Bexhill. The Sussex club did a fantastic job of rearranging the rally to Bexhill to which we the members are very grateful. The next few blogs are a snapshot of what went on including our 50th wedding anniversary.









The Trattoria Italiana for our anniversary lunch venue with our son Ian, his wife Claire and our granddaughter Daisy.  A very enjoyable meal it was too, finished off with Champagne.



Ready for the car show featured later.



The surprise was these two Iguanas sunbathing on the grass on the promenade note the owner, or his knees were close by. 
Thanks for looking, Mike

Bristol Cathedral

Hi folks,
sorry for my absence as I had a few problems with the computer. So much so that it was beyond repair so at great expense here I am back with a new one which I hope will last a long time.
The  Cathedral pictures were  taken whilst at the Balloon Fiesta

Up and Away at Bristol

Hi folks

 Sad story now,


This 7 meter balloon which was designed with NASA imagery and was due to be part of the main display unfortunately lost its helium in a puncture caused by the wind on the Thursday morning. I managed to see it and get a shot before it deflated. The exhibit was to be used in the night glow display and the chairs were set out so that you could look at it whilst listening to music.


Before close up of the now deflated moon, I was lucky to get it. Would have looked lovely lit up in the night sky


On a brighter note lots of balloons took to the air after the wind abated Saturday.


Early morning lift from the camp site.



Sundays lift and lots more in the air.



Last lift on Sunday night as they flew towards Bristol airport, our van even got in the picture.
Thanks for looking, Mike
