Today is a bit overcast and rainy on the IOW. However, yesterday we basked in glorious sunshine all day and drove over to Shorwell for our first festival of the year in the grounds of Wolverton Manor.

It was a festival set up to increase funds for Brighstone school and also for Cancer Research. It featured various folk and blues bands, and it was lovely being outside in the sunshine listening to music after two years of Covid and lockdowns. It wasn’t quite the big IOW Festival as you can see, but we enjoyed it!

At one point we had the delight of a group of Morris dancers with their sticks. Sam soon found the beer tent, and I could just imagine Sam and our sons doing this dance after a few beers. It would be a riot!

Time for swimming now in the site’s pool, and then out for Sunday lunch. Home tomorrow, but back again in a fortnight for a longer stay.
