Seems like an age since the 4 day celebrations here in the UK. My head has been restored to its normal self, and “Zee leetle grey cells” have started to work again! Having said all that, its been a great week, just to get away from work and enjoy life as it should be. Great food and good friends!
The fire has finally died out, leaving a rather large burnt patch, still mother nature will rectify that. The Repentance Tower, has not been burned to the ground, and the roof is still intact! On that night, we could see across the Solway Firth, to England, The Isle of Man, and right over the Pennine Hills. There were large Beacon fires, at Caerlavrock, Carsphairn, all across the country, and a most intense one across the Firth and up on the North lake District Hills. Fantastic! The whole length of Hadrians Wall was lit! From Newcastle to Carlisle! (73 miles)
The sun went down (ish) and by an hour or so later it was light again! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the spectacle!
I wont be alive when the next Diamond Jubilee happens, nor will a lot of folk, but God willing the country will rally again.
Finally, the horses are fine, and the weather has improved, so I will be off soon to do some serious riding. I`ll keep you all informed. Back to work tomorrow! Urgh!
P/s…….Had a strange encounter the other day, a case of Fate.
