What we’ve been up to in August and September:
On the 30th of August, seven of the club members boarded Richards Bros coach very early in the morning. On the way to the canal boarding point, we passed through Aberystwyth and onward past Bala Lake, stopping to see the windswept waters, some people were able to consume large ice creams. Going inland the scenery was spectacular if very windy. Joining the barge we were told not to rock the boat as the aqueduct was built in 1791 and the barge will hit the bottom! The bridge was a wonder of its day and still is. Two hours later we were in Lllanggollen for the trip back home. We stopped in Aberaeron for food, getting back for some of us at 11.30 so so tired, bed without my cocoa.
Dog Walk at Fresh East
On Thursday 5th September, 8 of our members met at Freshwater East beach to walk their dogs together. Afterwards they retired to The Long House for tea & cake!
On Saturday 7th September, 10 of us enjoyed a meal at our favourite Chinese Restaurant in Pentlepoir. Thanks to Cheryl for organising!
In August, instead of going out to our usual Sunday lunch we all descended on Graham and June for their annual 'Strawberry tea'. We all took a bit of savoury food along, sandwiches, bulgur wheat and veggie surprise (which was delicious) sausage rolls etc. June made her famous scones to go along with the strawberries and cream. Not forgetting her status as 'Lemon Drizzle Queen' she duly obliged with yet another mouthwatering cake. Wine, tea and coffee flowed! The weather was kind to us again, the sun shone all afternoon - but the wasps led us a merry dance hungry for the strawberry jam! Graham supplied a good wasp swatter and we all had a good laugh trying to kill the little beggars!
Dinner at the Jolly Sailor, Burton
On Tuesday 10th September the club subsidised an evening meal at the Jolly Sailor in Burton. There was a large menu with something for everyone, all very well received.
Blackadder II at Carew Castle
A small (but select) group went to Carew Castle on Thursday 16th August to see an open air production of Blackadder II. All agreed it was hilarious and well worth the trip.
