Trying to "GET" back to "Normality / EARTH"!!!!!!!!
It is a VERY big show, a lot to see and do.
Food and drink is very expensive, in the show (cup of tea £2.40).
A Stand worth a mention is the very impressive “SUNSEEKER” yachts,-- http://www.sunseekerboats.co.uk/ which has dedicated staff, with STEP CLIMBER, to assist disabled visitors.
We, travelled up, to a Travelodge just west of Andover, on Friday night, a good thing as motorway was very busy.
More on the show at www.llanboidy.com (Alans Adventures)
After, the show, we went for a meal at The Swan, pub and restaurant in Barton Stacey (Andover). Very nice meal in a nice setting.
On, the return journey, on Sunday, we visited STONEHENGE. Very ATMOSPHERIC. We got there early Sunday morning but it soon got very busy and chaotic. It is well worth the visit. During the visit, you will be given a headset to listen to an informative “audio description”.
Photos on -- http://www.flickr.com/ within the next few days
About halfway, on the homeward journey, we called in, with our niece, who works (and lives) at a country pub in Sutton Benger, Chippenham. The Sunday roast we ordered, was excellent.
I think “my Adventures” will have to include Chippenham, from now on. Chippenham has a train station, which is only a few miles, for my niece to come and pick me up (HINT HINT)
Next Sunday (23-9-07), I am invited, to Towy Boat Club, to go sailing in a “Challenger” Trimaran, (same as “Geoff Holt” www.personaleverest.com) .
Geoff Holt has been nominated as a contender for yachtsman of the year,
PLEASE If you feel the need to vote for him, you can at -- http://www.raymarine.com/raymarine/Default.asp?site=1&Section=43&Page=891&Parent=43
Talking about sailing, I am interested in a Hobie Adventure Island Mirage (a KAYAK Trimaran, with a sail).-- http://www.hobiecat.com/adventure-island/models_adventure_island.html
So it will be a BIG decision on which to invest – a “Hobie” or “Advanced Elements KAYAK.
Today (Monday 17-9-07) “a rest day” with the added bonus of hour and half in the GYM !!!!
