I ended up going to Petersfield at the crack of dawn to collect the tables from the local bridge club and helping deliver them to the tournament bvenuse. Then, with an hour's break, I slipped round to The George for coffee. Here's The George at 9 o'clock.
Yes, it was that lovely!
After bridge (more organising, crummy cards, fabulous lunch), I visited the lavender fields at Selborne, as the late afternoon was the best time to see them (and they were just still at their best). Here's a couple of pics:
Of course the place was crawling with bees.
Not the best focussed, but I liked this pose.
Next morning we were at the Playhouse Theatre in Epsom for granddaughter's first stage appearance (no photography allowed of course). And then down to Worthing.
En route we passed Box Hill. You may remember that the Olympics cycle road race was held over the Hill and along the flat here last year. The road is about to be closed again for the anniversary race. I'll see if I can make it back there then. Today though it was an excuse for a break here - in the valley by the Denbies Vineyard.
This was also the cue for the rain to begin at last (never thought I'd say that, but it's a while since we saw any). This is Box Hill seen from the garden.
Early a.m. before we were back home, but a quieter Sunday ahead (back to refurbishing the kitchen. Hmmm.).
