Rugby International?

We've had next weekend planned for months but thanks to an international rugby match, there's been a change of plan.
This coming Friday will see Karen and myself at the Cheltenham Races, which was going to be followed by a rugby match at Kingsholme on the Saturday, as the home team Gloucester take on Harlequins.
I have however just found out that Gloucester have picked up an international match on the Sunday and that the match we were going to see is now taking place on the Friday.

We can't be in two places at once but thankfully, all is not lost and instead of watching rugby, we're going to revisit this place instead. We were there earlier in the year and it truly is  magical. Its one of those places, where you daren't get yours out in public, because everyone else has a bigger one than you. I am of course referring to my camera.

Apparently, a few weeks later than usual, the first of the Bewick swans have started to return.

I'm going to Cheltenham races on Saturday    (I hope the girl selling the delicious macaroons last year is there again)

I hate to admit, that the last time I visited Slimbridge was when I was expecting my son, 40 something years ago!! It was on the agenda for this year, but we've not got there yet....

I'll try and leave you some winners Trish.

Emsley, I don't know if you saw it but we went to Slimbridge earler in the year and I absolutely loved hearing and seeing so many Lapwings. It reminded me of how common they were just a few years ago.

Thought this was going to be about the All Black games over there
