Wow! That’s two days in a row where the weather has been glorious!
Luckily, we’d already planned a while ago to meet up with Dennis and Sandra for a day-out (plus a picnic!) at Belton House – and the great weather was now an extra bonus! Last time we were here, back in July last year, the weather was a bit ‘so-so’, but today more than made up for it – what a belter!
In fact, I can’t recall the last time a Bank Holiday weekend was this warm!
It was great to catch-up with Dennis and Sandra, although the place was so busy, we initially had a bit of a problem spotting them in amongst the gazillions of other families planning to enjoy a day-out!
Friends located, we booked our timed ticket and then headed for the Gardens.
Then it was a quick-picnic behind the car before heading for the House.
Once inside the House, the first thing we noticed as how cool it was a – a welcome relief to outside!
An hour later, with the tour over, it was a return to the car’s rear for Dessert (where we’d left the picnic table set up)! By now, the car-park was a lot quieter, and we actually had quite a bit of room to scoff!
Then the ‘second wave’ began, and as we said our goodbyes to Dennis and Sandra, we could see the next batch of visitors coming in – and that was at 3pm! Clearly Belton House was a popular choice , no doubt helped a generous helping of today’s sunshine!
We headed back for A1 where it was surprisingly free of traffic – as a result, we were home by four o’clock.
Another great day out with friends!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
