It has been Tony, but at times there has been just too much hot and too little shade that was not already crammed like sardines!

Mad, the youngest runner was eight, in the junior section a girl came 2nd overall (Juniors), and in the adult's the oldest was a woman in her 70s and she was not last.
So there is something in eating all your Porridge and drinking the Whisky but you knew about the last bit.

Final lot.

Nice balloons Watchman. Wish I could have been up in a balloon this weekend - it might have been cooler!


Nice pics Dug. Caber tossing looks like hard work - I wonder how heavy a caber actually is :think:

South Downs Wood Fair pics - didn't get a change to get more photos as I was on the stall. It was busy, but not many people were spending. Some of the stall owners I spoke to had not even made the cost of their pitch! We covered out costs and made a bit, but not as much as we hoped at an event like this.

Anyhow, I did get an order to make a clock with an owl on it for someones Handfasting gift, should be fun to do!

The babies have been hatching at Wetlands Trust and you have to be a bit careful about where you tread. I was even lying on the ground to take a pic of something or other when I was assaulted (yes assaulted!) by a family of young ducklings using their beaks to see if I had food in my hand or whether my camera was edible. (Their nibbles were quite painless and rather sweet really.) However, when I walked away I was a bit worried when they started following behind me on the off-chance that some free food might be forthcoming in the near future. Fortunately, another family of people were coming in the opposite and I managed to make my getaway while the ducklings were being distracted by the newcomers. :lol:

There are two mated adults that live on the river. They are now so used to humans walking past that they are tame enough to approach fairly safely, although dog walkers beware. Personally, I don't care for how docile they are, I don't approach them when they have young - they are still a wild animal at heart and sometimes react like one.
