Bea Leaves for Manchester





I bought Bea almost on Sadie's 3rd birthday in 2013, when Meredith was one year old.  The girls have loved playing in the car, and Meredith loved being driven "Faster!".  Bea left on Andy's truck today with 33151 miles on the clock.  Thanks to Peter for all the help with work on her.

Paxton Pits






The goose looked like a cross between a Greylag and a Canada, and the presence of one adult of each species together seemed to bear this out.

Autograss Racing








Both Cambridge and St Neots use the Stretham track as their home ground this year, so it was busier than usual.

MG Car Club Races











Peter and I went to Snetterton, where the weather was, unusually, not too hot and not too cold.  Peter joined the MG parade and took Mollie on two laps of the circuit.

Cakes, Coffee and Kingfishers






Visitors to Lackford would have been disappointed by the fact that the visitor centre was closed today, but the third item on the menu, the little blue and orange bird, was a frequent visitor to the perches outside Bernard's Hide.

Air Show










Apparently Duxford forgot to book the Red Arrows for the Battle of Britain Air Show, but the nine Tiger Moths were fabulous trying to keep formation in the gusty wind, even doing a 'bomb burst' towards the crowd - priceless!  The WW1 replicas did their scenario to 'ack-ack fire' - that's a BE2c.  The Triplane has a VW air-cooled engine - you can see the silver alternator behind the prop.  The light-coloured triplane is a Sopwith.  The Blenheim and PBY displayed staunchly.
