    I can only echo the above from Mike and Toni @Nana - had a great time and it was good good to meet new and old friends. Especially a pleasure to see the old sea dog @rangitira and Maureen on such good form.

    Sincere thanks to @Wombles Alan and Karen for the organisation- everybody enjoyed it

    Thank you Karen and Alan @Wombles for organising such a great weekend. We had such fun and met so many lovely new people. Sorry @Nana but I've managed to get two loads of washing dry! Mind you I think the rain is due to arrive in time for my drive to Bristol airport so I shouldn't feel too smug.

    Cheeky git, sorry I didn't get to buy you a drink on Sunday evening Rangi @rangitira . A fabulouus meet, made so by new members and old. Nice to meet Pat and @Dizzy Izzy and @carolyn again. The Dux had a nice little dog too.

    I had never met @Crazylegs before, we had a fair bit in common and could have chatted with you all night, but as regards your daughters dog and your generous bribe, you'll have to improve your offer. Nice to meet you too @patricia the newbie !

    Apologies also for not getting to see the comedians at the festival but we discovered that Weymouth was having its very own Seafood Festival. It was a bit crowded but fabulous stalls and atmosphere.

    What a fabulous weekend, some of you might have heard that we love this site, and have been several times before, perhaps it enchanted others as well? Anyway we enjoyed everyone’s company, the festival and especially the weather. Our thanks must go to Alan and Karen who tirelessly find, research, and organise these events well done guys. See you in Lymington. 859E8250-9963-4604-B6F8-124867DCBA13.jpeg 70491FCE-FD5E-4356-8275-21FBAEE4393F.jpeg
