Gaydon Motor Museum

Saturday we visited the British Motor Museum at Gaydon for their Land Rover show.
We were asked to park in the show area with rows of other Land Rovers which was great as it is a long walk from the car park with dodgy knees!
The English weather was playing tricks again and after a lovely warm sunny Friday, Saturday was cold and windy with spots of rain in the air.
A bacon and egg sandwich with a hot chocolate soon warmed us up and we toured the museum, which is free entry on show days. A walk around the traders selling things Chris liked but I had no idea what they were and then watching a few events in the arena.
So many Land Rovers to look at from tiny to huge, some with guns on the top medical ambulances and fire engines.
My favorite were the mini Land Rovers especially the one driven by a girl of about 8 or 9 years towing a mini caravan with two very small children inside.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
