Sunshine at last!!

At last!!!  The weather forecast looks hopeful for the next few days and so David has been mowing grass in earnest ready to make hay (while the sun shines!).  We have quite a few acres mown and down at the moment so keep your fingers crossed for warm and breezy weather for the next few days.  We are getting absolutely desperate to get some hay into the barn for all those hungry goaties! 

Our vet student Jo decided to stay with us for the weekend rather than go home and come back for her second week.  As I only had one market over the weekend, I decided to give myself some time off and take her out to a couple of places.  After Wye market yesterday we enjoyed a delicious lunch in the Goods Shed in Canterbury and then went for a walk around the city - it's years since I have been into the town.  Plenty of tourists around, especially at the entrance to the cathedral:

And today we took a trip to the Whitstable Oyster Festival to watch everyone else working. It was great to be able to wander around and not have to sell cheese!!  We started with a chilled glass of Prosecco around 11am:

And then ate our way round the festival for the new few hours.  The weather was glorious and the sea was flat calm:

And being an Oyster Festival, there were more than a few oysters around .. this was just a small part of the discarded shell mountain!

It was lovely to have a few hours off and enjoy the sunshine and some very nice food.

Back to work now though .. I have told Jo that there will be no more lying in or time off until she finishes with us on Friday.  Hard woman that I am ...
