Teston Kite Festival: August 2008
We knew this was coming....
but.... What another fantastic weekend!!
What a fantastic, splendid, super duper weekend.
A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE
We had a wonderful time, even though the weather and wind was not on always our side
Friday - super weather with a calm evening - perfect for paper hot air balloons
Saturday - super morning and then, like the weathermen said, classical depression passed
(meteorologically speaking only - no depression amongs the Gits)
Sunday - sunny and very windy - a super day
Louise demonstrating her Rocket Science skills
Can you find Big John's Rocket?
What a super Venue for......
...our absolutely splendid Saturday evening meal
Thank you ladies for a fabulous spread
... and for John to kip down out of the rain!
(all very neat & tidy - he mus have been a Boy Sprout)
Ron and Jane test drive the new 1812 T-shirts
And a big thank you to you both for letting us play again
"play" = "make an unholy amount of noise & frighten all the local wildlife"
Maurice's Swallows, aren't they lovely
Minky - always the star of the show
Sunday Lunch (all the 100 desserts left over from our Saturday meal)
That gazebo earned its keep over the weekend!
Refuge from the rain and Control Centre for the Cultural Event
Here we all are on sunny, windy Sunday (notice how pipe-smoking is really catching on?)
