I had a right Royal week
It was all a bit of an anti climax when life went back to normal on Wednesday, but wasn’t it great while it lasted? The water pageant fully lived up to expectations, despite the dreariest of weather. I was smitten by the sight of Charles and Camilla dining al fresco with the crowds in Piccadilly. Grace Jones had me mesmerised by her hoola-hooping ability. Madness on the Palace roof? It only needed Jubilee scarecrows to make my weekend complete.
Elwick is such a pretty village, and was enhanced by its patriotic finery.
I was proud of the village for their efforts this year. There are lots more photos in http://restlessjo.wordpress.com/2012/06/05/jubilation-in-elwick/
I had hoped to visit Castle Eden Village to check out the royal theme going on in their scarecrow festival too, but a combination of atrocious weather and French Open tennis kept me away. Probably just as well. You can have too much of a good thing?
Time to ask for a rousing cheer, in good old English fashion, for Cate of Show My Face. It’s thanks to her I get a chance to sum up my week in six words, whether she’s happy or sad. Follow the link to see what it’s all about, and join in. Why not?
