October; and the pool is too cold for this lark.

Gumpsy's Birthday

Here's Gumpsy on his birthday, after a fine meal at his favourite Spanish eaterie, he retires to the park for a relax in the sun with his darling wife - and two generations of pests around him.

On The Beach

It may be October, but this is Guardamar Del Segura, on the Med coast, so we had to get the buckets, spades (& tractors) out.

And don't mention the hat :-)

A good walk spoiled

It's obvious Leamington Hasting's School haven't introduced this lot to Mark Twain

(taken at La Manga, Murcia, where we visited some of Rosie & Thomas' school friends - also on their hols.)

Sam's Birthday

Well, being in the country, as we were, it was an ideal chance for Sam to have another Birthday party.

Lots more party food.
And more C A K E !

Winter On The Way

Mid October, and overnight temps are already falling below zero. We awoke this weekend to find the Green coverred in frost. Brrrr.

On the upside, once the sun broke through we were treated to a crisp autumn day, which brought out wonderful colours around the village.

Stinky, Stinky 2 Strokes-2

Another 2-stroke Sunday at the Shoulder. Not so many stinkers this time, but still a tasty selection. Quite a few diesels too.

This time it was Flossie's turn to join Dad. She spotted the Harley 'Uncle David'son, sneered at some of the strokers, posed in front of a Buell.

And fell in love with a very old Royal Enfield dating from the twenties. Which she was amazed to find was older than her dad (!). She was so impressed she grabbed the camera and took a lot of photos of it.

You can see Rosie's camera work, plus more on picasa
