One year on….1st wedding anniversary

Yes, Pheeb’s and I have made it to our 1st year wedding anniversary! We celebrated by taking a weekend down in Devon, staying at a fantastic Inn called the Elephant’s Nest in the heart of Dartmoor which was recommended from Alastair Sawday’s Special Places book and website. We did manage to pay a visit to RHS Rosemoor and spent a good part of the day wandering around the impressive garden displays, however I think we both prefer Wisely as it does contain the hot house. πŸ˜‰ We also managed to take a good long walk on Dartmoor near the Two Bridges but did both get sun burnt…. doh. All in all a fantastic weekend spent with my wife…. xx

Man Camp

Man Camp 2011

Man Camp 2011 proved to be just as messy and more extravagant than previous years, with the return to Hurst View campsite. We also were lucky enough to use Rob’s new purchase a large bell tent which certainly made camping much more fun and comfortable (or was the beer?). We re-visited the Gun Inn in Keyhaven as well as Chequers in Lymington to sample the local beer and cider. We also enjoyed fire’s in the evening, lots of bbq’d meat and some entertaining conversations from “back in the day”! The photo’s from the weekend can be viewed here.

A walk around Chawton and fun with the RAT

Walking around Chawton
Spend a great afternoon walking around Chawton using the walk from Village Walks in Hampshire with Pheebs, Craig, Nicki and Tony. Took lots of Photo’s using my camera with my new Sigma 18-250mm lens which you can view here. Prior to the walk we had a pub lunch at the Grey Friar Inn in the pub garden enjoying the sunshine. πŸ˜‰ After the walk we headed back to Craig’s to get ready for our second event of the day with an evening on the Real Ale Train which runs on the Watercress line. The evening was amusing with some interesting characters on the train but I think next time we’ll do it in style with an evening on the dinning carriage with a full course meal! πŸ˜‰

Walking about Sherfield on Loddon

Walking around Sherfield-on-Lodden

Just had a great weekend with Pheeb’s old collage friend Charlotte and her fiance Nigel where we went for a pub lunch before embarking on a 5 mile walk around Sherfield on Lodden. Took a few photo’s of which can be viewed here. After the walk we headed home to chill out for the evening and enjoy a slow cooked stew with a few beers. πŸ˜‰
