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.
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.

Lastly not a Poppy but is reminded me of one in the Garden outside the cafe where we had a nice drink in the sunshine. Thanks for looking, Mike
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.
