More Sunshine!

Standard

We have, for the second time this year, a lovely sunny bank holiday Monday. Not an absolute scorcher, but neither I nor 70 million other Brits are complaining. We’ll take whatever sunshine we can get!

My friends left half a bottle of moderately decent cider behind so I’m on the hunt for a cider-based recipe for dinner tonight. If I’m successful I’ll blog the results (probably whilst swaying gently and informing you all that you’re all “my besshtt friends”). In the meantime feel free to enjoy some photographs of the fine landscape and areas of historical interest around Tangleton…..
