On my recent holiday up North (in England) I had the amazing experience of a country gala.
We had the May Queen parade...
Followed by a brass band and the town crier
It was a little pocket of a time gone by, so different to my Sydney existence
We ate full cream ice-ceam straight from the farm in a variety of flavours
My fave was blackcurrant and liquorice topped off with Royal Bourbon Vanilla
I learnt about the lifecycle of bees and honey, with Brian Wright, who's coming over to Sydney soon to visit his family on the North Shore
I held amazing owls that had been rescued from desperate situations and had been given a lifeline...
Oscar is a European Eagle Owl and such an amazing personality
The owl experience was a highlight of my holiday...
Mr Paul Rose, MBE does some truly inspirational work, in his owl rescue and rehabilitation centre.
A truly amazing man and a true friend to his very special owls.
This was followed by an egg throwing competition!
