Easter visit to Calais

A quick Easter visit to Calais to top up the alcohol and cheesy comestibles for the big day. Arrived surprisingly early and caught an earlier ferry, one of the great benefits of Dover. Couldn’t quite work out the sums as we were given half a case of wine worth more than the ferry ticket for travelling with P&O, but who are we to argue. Amazing how quick the time goes in Cite Europe, so back to the ferry to catch an earlier sailing home.

Wyke Down Spring Vehicle Meet 2014

Another year, another excellent Easter Monday Wyke Down vehicle meet. This year it was back where it belongs at Picket Piece¬†and the excellent weather brought the cars and assorted vehicles out in their droves. This year we took two wheeled transport to the event, enabling us to sneak past all the queuing traffic and get onto the site,¬†parking next to an assortment of two wheeled finest that put ours to shame. Not too long before our every day transport will be able to get on the field in its own right…

(Not quite so) Daffodil Sunday

You never know what the weather will be like for Binley’s Daffodil Sunday – the daffodils are either well past their sell-by date – or not quite ready. This year, following cold weather early on, it seems that it was an early year! Still, the cakes as usual were most welcome and much money was raised for Andover’s Riding for the Disabled.

Wyke Down Car Meet

At the end of a busy Easter weekend we made it to a very wet Wyke Down Car meet. The Vespa stayed in the garage (until Milly took it off elsewhere) and we made it to a slightly depleted car meet. Still plenty of cars to choose from with the great joy that most of them at some stage were ‘owned by Grandpa’. Orange Mini now Livi’s top car…
