Landrover Experience Day

Thanks to "Landrover Evoque", Hilary and I spent a superb afternoon at Landrover Experience at Skipton in Yorkshire. Despite having driven Landrovers for years, the only only way to appreciate their extraordinary abilities is to be let loose in one of the brand new Defender ES models under the watchful eye of one of Landrover's brilliant instructors.

We are now saving up for two Defenders, one each!! (plus an extra one for the trips to Waitrose!)Image

Bowker BMW Balloon

It has been a lovely day here and a glorious still evening.

As I drove up to the cottage tonight this hot air ballon was drifting very slowly over the forest, the occasional roar of the burner in the cooling air.
