Another weekend goes by, and on this occasion my first weekend without the Moon, while the
Tavern visited Cow Pie in Dorking - the Surrey Young Farmer's Agricultural show..
Why would a medieval Tavern be at an Agricultural show you may ask - well it is a long story -
but mainly because a small medieval village with story telling, juggling and ferret racing seemed to be appropriate and therefore a place to whet your whistle was needed.
Of course the last time we were there we outsold the field bar - so they decided that a Mead Emporium and Winery would be our restriction - so that is what they did.
Meanwhile, we had a wedding to celebrate.
The weather proved glorious - for almost the whole day, and though the temperature is still low, the drive up to Reading in the Bothy was a delight. Our Green and verdant lands seem to have been transmuted into yellow lands - with the Gorse flowers out and field upon field of Rape stretching for miles.
The Bothy once again proved a great success - a nice flat car park at the wedding venue, near to some woods ideal for the dogs.
A home from home which allowed us to fall into bed at the end of the day, rather than looking for taxis and hotels, the nearest of which was a few miles away down country lanes.
Morning found the sun shining - so a good portent, and the woods were full of bluebells, so an early walk through the trees started the day.
