Been a good, hectic, weekend; but I think I must leave Friday (which was, incidentally, my birthday) out, and start on Saturday, which, as per the photo above, started with brekky at Hollow Trees farm shop Restaurant, with five of our friends. The usual excellent,tradional breakfast was held. Then, after we'd run the two foremost females (or, to put it more politely - the two ladies nearest the camera) back to Highdale, we got back in the car and motored over to Cambridge, and had our annual quant along the Cam in a pair of punts with as many of our descendants as could make it.
Above are the two punts, with, central to the picture, senior daughter, Sarah and her mate, Mikey.
Passing, above photo, King's College Chapel to prove it ( where we were, I mean).
Then back to the Double Tree Hotel, as it's now called, to a long table where a mini version of tea at the Ritz was laid out for us. Above shows Ann with our youngest descendant, Great Granddaughter Astrid.
Above photo shows second youngest descendant, Elsa, feeding bits of egg and cress sandwich to her slightly younger second cousin Astrid. A very responsible position, being a senior second cousin.
And finally your blogger Pa Magna Mike, with his two Great Granddaughters, Astrid and Elsa; which names trip off the pen nicely, I think. Yesterday was a Great Day, set in the middle of a GREAT WEEKEND!!!!!
Off now, for a mid afternoon Zizz, or Kip.
Cheers and Regards, Mike.
