Outing to Holkham

If we' listened to the weather forecast we might have stayed at home. As it was we had a few drops of rain just as we went into the Farm to Fork museum but by the time we came out it was fine again and it stayed fine for the rest of the day with sunny spells. 

After we'd eaten our picnic on the grass under some trees Ken got out his guitar and serenaded us. Movement to music Heather had some of her instruments in the car so we had maracas and tambourines to accompany him. 

It's quite a distance to the walled garden so some of us took the golf buggy and Adrian brought everyone else in the bus. It was worth the effort as the garden is very impressive and the greenhouses were massive. Lots of beautiful sights, smells and tastes from the odd scrumped strawberry. Thanks to the Age Concern bus and in particular Adrian the driver, everyone who came and helped and made it an enjoyable and relaxing day, Pearl and Lin for the picnic and the wonderful welcoming staff at Holkam Hall.
