There are usually more of us, but many of the regulars had good reasons to be absent and that meant that everyone who did come was able to sit in a big circle on the pleasantly sunny afternoon. It really was very relaxing.
The pictures don't show everyone, as some of the party were engaged in football, mini-golf, pedalos and other distractions. It's a short walk from the Park to the castle, which I understand merits a full day's visit.
Chris, in particular, was busy playing mini golf, practicing for a Challenge. On Monday he and three others will be trying to complete four rounds of golf on a full size course, all in one day, in support of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. We hope they succeed in this formidable challenge.
It was good to see everyone and enjoy this most pleasant picnic in the park. A lovely way to spend a day.
